Charismatic Leader by Dale L. Brubaker

Book Description

'Future generations of educational leaders will be in debt to Brubaker for a long overdue guide to presentation of self in educational settings. The book is realistic, clear, and sensitive to the needs of practitioners on the firing line' - Lawrence Simon, Professor, Elon University 'Dale Brubaker writes that teacher and administrator preservice and inservice education programs give too little attention to cmmunication skills that will help educational professionals reach other adults. His book explains the implications of this unacceptable truth and moves the reader to do something about it' - Richard D. Amme, President, Amme & Associates, Inc. 'I heartily endorse Dale Brubaker's latest book on civilities and the presentation of self as a natural extension of his essays, commentaries and books over the past several decades' - George E. Uhlig, Professor of Education, University of South Alabama Discover the attitudes, behaviors, and skills that will help you become a more dynamic communicator in any situation! Why do some educators have the ability to inspire while others barely hold the attention of staff, parents, or seminar participants? How should you present ideas to ensure the most success in effecting change? Discover the oft-overlooked but critical civilities of leadership that will give you a distinct edge. Using vignettes and thought-provoking exercises, Brubaker illustrates the rituals, attitudes, and skills successful leaders exhibit, allowing them to make meaningful connections with audiences and foster positive and productive school cultures. The Charismatic Leader offers SAGE advice for getting the most out of every interaction, whether a one-on-one conversation, interview, or presentation,or a large group. Beginning with the 'table manners of leadership,' Dale L Brubaker pinpoints essential skills that promote the effective exchange of information and better relationships including: Listening carefully to absorb details and discover hidden messages Focusing on the task at hand to choose the most appropriate communication strategy Preparing and rehearsing for flawless personal presentation Team building using techniques that foster collaboration and motivation Make every interaction count-and build ties that will make a positive and lasting difference in your organization!
