High Leverage Leadership Book Excerpt:

"A pupil's academic, technical and social capacity will set the limits to their success or failure. Therefore, educational outcomes and well-being for young people across emerging and developed economies and the crucial role of education and leaders of education has never been more important. Schools are under pressure to think more clearly about their place in children's lives, their relationship with civic institutions and their contribution to community. The pressure translates into a requirement for high quality learning in classrooms and more besides. The processes inside schools, the organisation of school systems and the relationship between communities and educators are critical elements in a complex mix that must balance correctly if it is to benefit school children properly. Using the term "high leverage leadership" to describe leadership that is associated with higher outcomes than would normally be found in similar contexts, this timely book: - Provides an overview of the development of educational leadership research - demonstrates how successful educational leaders apply contextual, social and professional expertise to the three distinctive leadership tasks of navigation, management and partnership - offers an insight into the complexity of the educational leadership and practices of teachers who, against the odds, produce high outcomes for young people - validates the idea that a renovation of educational leadership is necessary to maximise educational outcomes. High Leverage Leadership will be an indispensible text for school leaders, public sector officers, post-graduate students and researchers in leadership, policy, school improvement and educational change"-- Provided by publisher.

A Principal Manager s Guide to Leverage Leadership 2 0 Book Excerpt:

Build better schools by training better leaders A Principal Manager’s Guide to Leverage Leadership answers the question that district leaders have been asking across the country: if Leverage Leadership is a roadmap for principals on how to lead great schools, what can principal managers and districts do to support them on that path? A Principal Manager’s Guide to Leverage Leadership offers a step-by-step guide to coaching principals to the highest levels of achievement, and it is rooted in studying the most successful principal managers and districts across the country. It can be used by principal managers/supervisors, superintendents, district and state leadership, and principal training organizations to accelerate the growth of principals in your community. Used in conjunction with Leverage Leadership 2.0, this book identifies the key actions principal managers should take to create exceptional school leaders, integrating the seven levers of leadership into district culture from the principal manager on up. With a particular emphasis on the two “super-levers” of data-driven instruction and student culture, this book is packed with advice, professional development materials, and real-world videos of principal managers in action, offering principal managers a valuable resource for bringing about change. A Principal Manager’s Guide to Leverage Leadership introduces a new unifying approach that is also highlighted in Leverage Leadership 2.0: See It, Name It, Do It. It gives you the tools to See it (see models of effective practice and identify gaps), Name it (name concrete actions for improvement) and Do it (provide means to practice these action steps until a principal masters them) With A Principal Manager’s Guide to Leverage Leadership in hand, principal managers, superintendents and principal training organizations can facilitate district-wide and state-wide transformations and hasten the benefit to the students and community as a whole.

Moral Leadership Book Excerpt:

In this new book, the author shows how creating a new leadership practice--one with a moral dimension built around purpose, values, and beliefs--can transform a school from an organization to a community and inspire the kinds of commitment, devotion, and service that can make our schools great. Current management theory and leadership practice often underestimate the complexity of human nature and people's capacity to be motivated by something other than self-interest. Sergiovanni explains the importance of legitimizing emotion and getting in touch with basic values and connections with others. He reveals how true collegiality, based on shared work and common goals, leads to a natural interdependence among teachers. And he shows how a public declaration of values and purpose can help turn schools into virtuous communities where teachers are self-managers and professionalism is held up as an ideal.

The Essence of Leadership Book Excerpt:

Leadership, not a national industrial policy, is the key to restoring America's competitiveness in the global economy--and the key to leadership is the ability to think, not management "charisma" or personality traits alone. Robert maintains that management must master a set of mental skills, which Robert has termed "critical thinking", and develop a "coherent strategy" that others in the organization will accept. Moreover, effective leaders encourage innovative thinking, and when problems arise they apply it decisively. These skills are not vague but concrete and communicable. Systematizing and codifying them here with numerous charts, diagrams, and checklists, Robert shows how they've been acquired and applied in corporations, with which he and his consultant colleagues have worked, and how these skills can benefit you and your own organization as well.
