Description - The Charismatic Leader by Dale L. Brubaker

'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!

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.
