I may have jumped the gun a bit in reading this book, but I got so excited about working in school leadership that I couldn't help it. The reason I'm not giving it more than three stars is that I think it will become much more helpful to me when I am a practitioner than it is at the moment. At any rate, it provided a good mix of insights that I relate to from my own socioprofessional experiences and ones that seem new and useful to me.

The names were changed to protect the guilty in this book, but the stories did not convince me that this was the only interpretation that I could have reached after hearing the evidence. I KNOW that trust does matter, but this book did very little to influence my actions, experience, or opinions on this important topic.

Read for a district leadership cohort. Good insight into the importance of trust in order to make change. I liked the three "characters" that were woven in as examples. I found myself saying "I know a Gloria...", etc. I recommend to all leaders trying to implement change or improve culture/climate.

This is a book that every administrator, including superintendents, district administrators, and school site administrators should read if dealing with toxic school cultures. Bottom line, trust is earned and it must start from the top.

Repetitive and primarily for principals, although some ideas apply to anyone. Not especially thought-provoking.
