This article examines the current leadership trend and the exploration of systematic preparation of private school principals of Singapore and Nepal in order to cope with future school change. School principals are the most important change agents in the construction of new and innovative leadership practices that enhance the change process in the school. In this sense, school principals are trend-setters who build frameworks for their own preparation for the future to better understand effective leadership in different contexts. This article presents a comparative study keeping Singapore as a benchmark and a discussion of leadership process of the Singaporean and Nepalese principals and their preparation strategy for school transformation. The results from this study will indicate the new role of prepared principal for the 21st century and challenge the paradigm shift in the leadership patterns through change for Nepalese private school principals.
