For the development of an organisation it is important that the employees working with the organisation should be expert in all the areas of their work. The introduction of humanistic psychology with its concern for the completely operative person has become one of the key contributing feature to an greater view of personhood and human potential, for the last sixty years (Kydd et al., 1997). Professional development of employees have become the central aim of the leaders and managers for better outcomes and making the right situation to release the actualizing tendency in...
The importance of education in the development of a nation cannot be underestimated. It is education that develops expertise, excellence and knowledge that lead to the overall development of any economy. This has created a necessity to develop the strategies for the development of Higher Education (HE) in almost all the countries of the world (Ali et al., 2010). Thus the success of higher education institutions (HEIs) depends on how the educational leaders work to implement the strategies. HE, on one hand, can effectively provide the qualified human resource in the form of ...
The importance of higher education (HE) in the socio economic growth of a nation cannot be neglected in this highly competitive world of globalisation. However, the developing countries are facing many challenges to provide adequate funding to the universities in order to ensure quality of HE (Johnstone et al, 1998).

It is more than six decades since India gained independence.

In National Policy on Education (NPE) 1968, provisions were made for free and compul...

The quality of education in Government Primary Schools (GPS) is of growing concern in India. As teachers play the key role in not only upholding the quality of teaching and learning but also of the leadership and management in schools, it becomes crucial that teachers feel easy at work and have satisfaction with their work and working conditions. Despite the recommendation of National Education Commission (NEC, 1964) to ensure teachers’ job satisfaction it seems that the campaign to provide quality elementary education (such as DPEP, UEE, SSA) to children has ignored the teachers’ prospective....
