This study examines how Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) can be applied to the role of principal. It begins by providing a multi-disciplinary review of SHRM, which at its core is a theoretical framework for understanding how human resource managers can help organizations accomplish their goals. Using case study methodology, the paper then provides a detailed description of an accomplished elementary school principal whose leadership closely aligns with SHRM. Questions addressed include how do effective principals define their roles as instructional leaders, how do they employ SHRM, and how might school districts aid principals in developing a strategic HR approach to leadership. The study reveals that SHRM can significantly help school districts, academic institutions, and school leaders promote excellence in their schools.
