"There is such authenticity when educators speak from true experiences. I found myself unwilling to put this book down. There are so many ways this book can be used by educators, but probably none more important than by the individual principal seeking support, affirmation, and inspiration."---Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director National Staff Development Council

"Williams and Richardson bring to life the abstractions and aspirations of the ISLLC standards through helpful explanations, vivid examples, and compelling stories. Their reflective questions and use of journal writing honor the uniqueness of each reader, and the authors offer practical suggestions for further learning and action."---Dennis Sparks, President Thinking Partners

Offering a personal leadership coach in book format, this valuable resource provides scenarios for rich conversations to strengthen a leader's capacity for problem solving and for handling the day-to-day challenges of the elementary principalship.

Written in a very personal voice and based on the authors' experiences as principals, this engaging book is perfect for elementary school leaders to use on their own or as part of formal professional development. Each chapter focuses on a particular ISLLC standard and features real-life scenarios, mini coaching sessions, journaling sections, and professional development opportunities.

With this book as a portable coach, elementary principals can develop their practice, grow in their positions, and become the remarkable leaders their schools need!
