Innovative leadership development can assist administrators of private vocational colleges in identifying and capitalizing on new opportunities within the educational administration network by fostering creative thinking and openness to new ideas. Such administrators can discover novel approaches to efficiently and effectively address the needs of students, faculty members, and stakeholders. Therefore, the research objectives are as follows: to examine the components and indicators of innovative leadership among administrators of private vocational colleges in the northeastern region, to assess the consistency of the innovative leadership measurement model, and to develop guidelines based on the study findings for implementation. To develop the innovative leadership of private vocational college administrators, a mixed-method research approach was employed, consisting of four phases. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and statistical packages for further reference. The results revealed that Innovative Leadership comprises five main components and fifteen indicators. These indicators were found to be appropriate based on the specified criteria. The developed measurement model for innovative leadership indicators demonstrated consistency with the empirical data, with statistically significant values (P-value = 0.73, RMSEA = 0.023, SRMR = 0.019, CFI = 1.00, TLI = 1.00). Furthermore, all main components exhibited factor loadings higher than the criterion of 0.70, while sub-components and indicators displayed factor loadings higher than the criterion of 0.30. Finally, the implementation of the guidelines yielded positive results, as they were deemed suitable, feasible, and highly beneficial across all aspects.
