– The purpose of this paper is to synthesize the findings of the follow-up studies of
successful school principals in six countries – Australia, Denmark, England, Norway, Sweden, and the USA.
– Data were categorized according to stakeholder expectations, the concept and practice of leadership, and the sustainability of leadership.
– The synthesis revealed that several similar factors contribute to sustained successful leadership, although there were also differences that appeared to be associated with two groupings of countries – Australia, England and the USA on the one hand, and the Nordic countries, on the other.
– The paper brings together data gathered from the same schools five years apart and facilitates a better understanding of the sustainability of successful school leadership.
