The article presents the results of an analytical research of personal readiness for change of the administrators (principals and their assistants) of Institutions of general secondary education, conducted by the Chair of Educational Leadership of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University in October-November 2021. The phenomenon of psychological readiness for changes is considered. This phenomenon was studied through the research of personal characteristics of the administrators of the schools and the identification of dominant psychological factors that affect the process of their adaptation to change. Respondents demonstrated a medium-level of advantage in such indicators as "passion", "ingenuity", "confidence". The indicator of "optimism" was defined as insufficient to implement changes in educational institutions. Also, the slow pace of education reforms can be explained by the low level of indicators "courage", "adaptability", "tolerance for uncertainty". The results of the research revealed also contradictions between the high self-esteem of respondents regarding their attitude to change and towards the introduction of innovations in general secondary education, and low levels of such components of personal readiness of school managers for change as "courage", "adaptability", "tolerance for uncertainty". These factors are especially important for the effective transformation of schools and for the implementation of reforms in Ukraine. Low indicators may indicate a distorted and unconstructive system of motivation in the work of the administrators of the institutions of General Education and, therefore, be a deterrent in making changes and implementing new ones.
