Anyone who has spent time in education knows that teachers achieve more when they feel better motivated. The media, policy makers, teachers' unions, and a multitude of others have opinions on how leaders should motivate staff, but what really works?

In this timely and constructive book, Linda Evans draws from a wealth of evidence and experience to answer this question. She shares examples drawn from a range of educational settings, from schools for young children to colleges for older students, and shows the contrast between successful and unsuccessful management of teachers, motivation.
