Being a Successful Principal by David R Schumaker

Book Description

The book is intended to provide practical solutions to everyday problems that principals encounter. It is also a guideline for becoming a true leader and leading for school change. The authors organize the book around three principals of Cognitive Coaching: developing trust, learning, and holonomy. Each chapter will have a theme, research citations for further reading, and anecdotal stories about what worked in real schools. This is not a book of theory, but a book built on the lived experiences of school principals.
