Abstract: The purpose of this study was two fold. The first segment of research was to determine the degree to which school superintendents in the state of North Carolina had successfully implemented second-order changes (defined as a restructuring or change of an existing system). The second segment was to determine if there was a consistent pattern of leadership types of those superintendents who had successfully implemented second-order changes as compared to those who had not successfully implemented second-order changes. The superintendents who participated in the NC Institute of Government Superintendents' Executive Program, II (SEP II) were the representative population for this study. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, administered during SEP II, was the instrument used to determine leadership type of each participant. Each superintendent participant was then asked to complete a survey on types of changes implemented during his tenure as superintendent.
