11 25865: Interviewing Correctional Leader assists in averting resistance in the process of communicating as well as implementing the vision. From the interview, it also came to be evident that there are challenges in the process of communicating a vision. Nonetheless, the resistance is not always a rebellion but an expression of feelings towards the change. With proper strategies, such resistance can be neutralized for the vision to get rooted among the staff. Just like leadership in other sectors, transformational leadership theory applies in correctional settings. Correctional systems need people who can develop their staff for better service delivery. As a result, this newfound insight corresponds with the assigned readings in the course. Summary Professional correctional leadership remains important in establishing as well as maintaining humane correctional facilities. The reason is that well-run correctional facilities are not as a result of perfect philosophy, laws, or lawsuits, despite the fact that these facts are also important. Lack of intelligent, competent as well as inspiring correctional leadership creates little chances of decent, much less constructive correctional environments as well as operations. Even the illegal conditions of confinement lawsuits that emanate from sweeping remedial orders succeed only where good leadership is willing and able to handle court-guided reforms (Freeman, 1999). Skillful correctional leaders always manage to make use of court interventions as avenues to enhance the corrections’ physical plant as well as administration. On the other hand, if correctional officers are unfriendly and not transformational, accomplishing recalcitrant reforms becomes difficult. It is critical when it comes to who leads correctional systems as well as individual correctional facilities (Fisher-Yoshida, & Geller, 2009).

Transformational leadership is the best strategy that can help to communicate a vision. On the other hand, communicating vision needs strategic techniques as well as ways to handle resistance. This newfound insight corresponds with the assigned readings in the course from the fact that it has presented how vast academic, as well as popular leadership literature, applies to correctional leadership. Since there is a great socio-political importance in the correctional system, coming up with ideal qualities as well as characteristics of correctional leader can help to create a substantial professional corpus.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
