The Collaborative Administrator: Working Together as a Professional Learning Community explores the nature of leadership in a PLC. Using insights from a variety of experts who have implemented and sustained collaborative cultures of continuous improvement in schools around the nation, this anthology offers answers to the most important questions surrounding PLCs. In a culture of shared leadership, the administrator┐s role is more important than ever. How do administrators maintain the right balance of ┐loose-tight┐ leadership and build profound, lasting trust? What principles strengthen principal leadership? How can administrators overcome the practical obstacles of creating a professional learning community (PLC)? The Collaborative Administrator delivers strategies and heartfelt inspiration from educators who have faced these challenges and found answers.
