The author of this book breaks the chapters in to different types of leadership that build on each other. Each chapter is also broken down in to subcategories that fit under the overall chapter title. From there, he has practical ideas and strategies that he has used and encourages the reader to use for each of the topics he writes about. The book also includes great reproducible resources as appendices.

Overall, this book is easy to read and understand. I could easily picture the scenarios that

This is my second time to read this book, but this time with a different lens and at a different school. For a school starting it's journey in continuous improvement it has some very practical ideas. It is also good to refresh and remind myself that there are some very necessary things to consider when you are a leader. I don't want to give too much away since I will be doing a book study with all my K-12 teacher leaders this year, but I am happy to see some practical advise that aligns with our ...more

In comparison to the other leadership books I have read this one was dull and not too insightful. I should have read the book instead of getting my masters degree because the book basically summed up what I paid thousands of dollars to learn. Be a good person and people will respect you more as a leader.

A helpful resource and guide for current and future teacher leaders. Slightly out of date in references to NCLB and other early 2000s trends in education, but the message still rings true. Teacher leaders need to empower their colleagues to greatness.

Easy read, which is helpful for a 4 week intensive summer class. It gave specific examples of things to do to take leadership, which I appreciated. Although it was kind of heavy on a Department Chair leader and not just teacher leaders.

Okay book about different qualities needed for teacher leaders have, how to develop them. good book study. can be stilted at times but with discussion, i think the book would be sufficient for new grade level chairs.

just read a few chapters of this book, some good suggestions on helping with school morale. Many fellow campus leaders agree with the suggestion that paying attention to staff in a positive way is more appreciated than little trinkets.

This book was okay. It was informative and well written, but if you are not a leader (I am not), the information seemed admirable but irrelevant.

Well, another book for my post grad school continuing ed.....

It would be an alright resource for a new or upcoming department chair, but nothing too dazzling. Most of it is common sense.

The appendices are good. Every thing else is pretty obvious and elementary. Don't waste the time reading it. Just use the appendices.
