Previous chapters have considered the range of ways in which the women in educational leadership roles that we interviewed have developed and used their leadership authority. Over time, and in a range of circumstances, they have done this through exercising the formal mandates associated with their roles, by taking up authority on their own terms in self-defining ways, or by enacting some combination of the two. Their descriptions of just how they have gone about this alert us to the many different ways in which leaders can attempt to influence the behaviour of others and the events, environments and processes that shape their practice.
