The Executive's Role in Relation to Staff in Personnel Practices
This piece explores the executive's part in bringing about good personnel practice. The author asserts that the nature and quality of the agency's leadership is a major determinant of the kind of personnel practices that can evolve. The professional leader must be able to evaluate the quality of the work and to recognize its creative possibilities in addition to knowing the basic components of the job. Leadership on the board's part is the ability to govern the agency so that it may fulfill its authorized function appropriately through changing times and circumstances. The piece concludes by stating that a well-authorized agency, under good leadership, with a philosophy of creative sharing and a method of integration is the one most likely to develop personnel practices appropriate to its service.
