Is finding satisfaction in leadership a true possibility? Leadership positions are packed with difficult decisions, long hours and small room for error. In education, the role of the superintendent is viewed as high-stress, and research reports a high turnover rate. Superintendents face pressure and criticism from several fronts. Despite these circumstances, many superintendents find satisfaction within the position. In Satisfied Superintendents: A Case Study, the stories of several superintendents are used to discover the key to unlocking satisfaction in leadership. Research on motivation and job satisfaction is discussed as well as the current role of superintendents in the 21st century. Motivation to obtain the superintendency, extrinsic and intrinsic rewards in the superintendency, support systems within the position, and routines established by superintendents to maintain health are important themes that emerge from the study.
