Summary

This second edition of the bestseller helps teachers and principals reframe challenges and expand leadership potential by using four defining lenses: political, human resources, structural, and symbolic.

"The leadership skills highlighted are practical and helpful and are applied to specific situations that have been clearly outlined." -Randy Cook, Chemistry/Physics Teacher

“Destined to be a classic in its own right, this book offers readers insights into the realities of teaching and leading schools that are at once refreshing, insightful, and practical. A quick, enjoyable read that encourages deep reflection for best practice.” -Jeffrey Glanz, Silverstein Chair in Professional Ethics & Values

Bolman and Deal's book is profoundly important text for those learning to lead, principal and teacher alike. The authors have presented richly crafted examples of life in the school, both from the teacher and the principal perspective, and introduces the reader to the fundamental principles of leadership. The narratives offer an authentic, real-world picture of learning to lead that takes into account all those individuals most directly implicated in and impacted by leadership at the school level." -Patricia M. Jenlink, Professor of Educational Leadership

"This book reads like a story-once I started, I had a hard time putting it down. How often do we say that about a book on education?” -Loukea N. Kovanis-Wilson, Chemistry Instructor
