Jump start your roles as “learning leader” and “lead learner!”

 

Designed for leaders to learn and lead within the “middle space” between the seemingly opposing dynamics of district expectations and practitioner experience, this book advances the concept of the school as a learning organization. This innovative perspective guides leaders through an intentional, deliberate learning process to develop intelligent, responsive leadership practice. Using stories, strategies, and tools, the authors

·         Explain the power of “purposeful practice” as a methodology for getting better

·         Show how to build the requisite capacities to lead effectively via “influence”

·         Describe how to turn adaptive challenges into leadership inquiries for growth



"This important work demonstrates and reinforces the idea that continuous improvement can only come from deep, intentional, focused, and hard work on the part of everyone within an organization. While the examples are rooted within schools and school districts, this work is applicable to any organization that seeks meaningful and specific improvement in their results. This is a must-read for leaders!"

—Lynn Macan

Industry Reviews

"What I like about The Intelligent, Responsive Leader is that it gives a structure for personal and vicarious learning about the real matter of school leadership, so that these accumulated experiences and wisdom are not lost at either the personal or collegial levels."

-- Dr Neil MacNeill, Head Master

"The information in Leading Intelligent, Responsive Schools ought to be shared with more people! Some of us have had the opportunity to work with a leadership coach, but many have not and this book levels that playing field."

-- Brigitte Tennis, Founder, Headmistress and 8th - 10th Grade Teacher
