Summary

The Leadership Assignment shows how educators can effectively change and renew schools aided by a key resource -- people in the schools.

This book is for educators who are immersed in leading and managing change and school renewal. It is action-driven with many tools and applications, but is based on solid research and theory from thinkers such as Kurt Lewin, Abraham Maslow, and Edgar Schein. Eight change principles form the core chapters that will assist readers to create continuously renewing organizations. Throughout the book, case studies illustrate the change process and real life struggles leaders face as they work in educational organizations.

Features :

  • Very applied yet based on the major researchers and thinkers in organizational change such as Maslow, Lewin, and Schein.
  • Case studies and checklists throughout the book illustrate critical points and leadership challenges.
  • Change Leadership Lessons succinctly present issues that require action in order to produce continuously renewing organizations (Ch. 8).
  • Chapters conclude with "Resource Packages" that note Internet sites, books, organizations, and other pertinent material that educators can use to investigate chapter contents further.
  • Throughout the book, change and renewal are viewed as positive events that leaders can influence with thoughtful planning.
