Building Capacity and Strengthening Relationships659Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.This landmark book translates positive and asset-based understandings of organizations to develop a powerful model of school leadership that is grounded in both existing research and the complexities of life in schools. The authors-both senior scholars in educational leadership-apply insights from positive psychology to the role and function of educational leaders. The Positive School Leadership (PSL) model draws on the strengths of relationships among staff and the broader school community to communicate and instill shared values and a common mission. This book builds a compelling case for creating a more inclusive, less "mechanistic" approach to leadership. Designed to engage both the hearts and minds of readers, the text is organized around reflective questioning of educational practice and current assumptions about the purposes and goals of leadership in schools.

As a professor in a leadership preparation program, I have already suggested this book to students, colleagues, and practicing administrators in both leadership and other fields. --Teachers College Record "The highlight of the book is the support for the importance of building relationships, which the authors call "the heart of Positive School Leadership." --School Administrator
