Whilst I am a professional administrator and manager, I know that apart from the core skills in administration and management of planning, organising, staffing, control, budgeting, etc, you also need leadership skills to function effectively, and these would include making deliberate efforts to study and get to know the workforce you lead, relate with them and inspire as well as motivate them to achieve goals. so , do what's right and required in your position to get the job done.
Another thing you’ll need to understand is that administrators in a school go by quite a number of titles which include school administrators (my favourite title!), principal, head teacher, sectional head, head mistress, head master, assistant or vice principals, dean of students, superintendent of schools, provost, etc. My advice to you? Do not be overwhelmed by titles.
