Developing Sustainable Leadership by Brent Davies

Book Description

'School leaders and teachers know a lot more than they think they do. So, what prevents the release of that creative energy? Look, no further than this thought provoking collection of essays from world leading scholars. It treats us to a kaleidoscopic view of what we do know, what we ought to know and what we urgently need to do to harness the power of sustainable leadership. Policy makers, please take careful note!'-John MacBeath, Professor Education Leadership, University of Cambridge With increasing accountability pressures, developing and sustaining leaders is a major challenge for all those involved in education today. This book brings together eleven outstanding writers to provide insights, frameworks and ideas on how we can sustain our school leaders and develop values-based leadership in order to counter the short-term management solutions that abound.Andy Hargreaves, Dean Fink, Michael Fullan, Brent Davies, Ken Leithwood, David Hopkins, Geoff Southworth, Brian Caldwell, Chris Day, Terry Deal and Gib Hentschke represent some of the most powerful thinkers and writers in the educational leadership field who respond to the challenge of how we can develop and sustain our school leaders. While a great deal has been written on preparation for leadership, this book takes leadership thinking to the next level by providing strategies for enhancing and empowering the leaders we have. This book is a key source of ideas, insights and frameworks for all those involved in sustaining our school leaders. 'Offers a clarity to complex problems that enables both the academic and general reader to identify with the issues dealt with...the book is an enjoyable insight into several leaders' view on leadership, which Brent Davies has pulled together well and which will be of use to headteachers, aspiring leaders and academics alike' - International Journal of Educational Management
