Principal Martha may want to administrate a faculty meeting that aims to encourage the faculty members to elevate their leadership skills by accepting role responsibilities that would help the institution achieve higher academic standards. She is expected to play a significant role in improving the efficiency, proficiency and security of the academic environment. Showcasing her leadership skills would inspire the members of the faculty to enhance their capabilities. Teachers may have the different inclination in terms of leadership and Principal Martha is responsible for determining which of which teachers would perform better on a certain task according to their skill set. She also has to give extensive supervision to her staff to be able to polish their skills. Even Principal Martha requires additional training for the better understanding of what the goals are, and the keys to achieving it.

The evaluation results must be kept for school academic progress report and may be used to extract the opportunities for improvement.
- Organizational leadership:

- Communal leadership:
