Passion, vision, relatability—can we ever quantify the facets of successful leadership? Is there sufficient “there-there” behind these feel-good words to transform a school into a culture of learning and bold hope? Yes, and yes! Inspired by John Hattie’s impressive research, Fisher, Frey, Lassiter, and Smith bring their trademark clarity to turn aspiration into energized action.

For each of the five components that all effective leaders possess—trustworthiness, competence, dynamism, immediacy, and forward-thinking—leaders learn the first steps and bold leaps to mentor others. Each chapter abounds with professional development tools, including:
  • Self-assessments so you know your baseline
  • Pause and ponder questions to envision change
  • REAL features to lead with alacrity
  • Checklists to stay focused and strategic
  • Relevant research to assimilate and share
Now more than ever, schools need to be places where openness and trust are baked into every hallway hello and every meeting, so collective talents can take us farther than we ever imagined. Let Leader Credibility be your guide to steering others to that greatness.

San Bernardino City Unified School District

Leader Credibility is a must read for every educational leader. All too often school improvement plans and initiatives fail - not on their merits but on the credibility of the leader. Educational leaders need to be strategic about how they contribute to or derail the success of these initiatives. This book provides a frame for how to build leader credibility and provides many opportunities for structured self-reflection.

Klein ISD

This book offers tangible ways to build your leadership credibility and concrete methods for building strong relationships that will cultivate a culture of trust and community. 

Okaloosa County School District

I highly recommend this book. Teachers are yearning for great leadership.  This book helps educational leaders analyze the skillset it takes to lead with credibility. 

Greenfield Exempted Village Schools

The authors share relevant research, illustrations, and tools for self-reflection which can be used to impact the daily work of school leaders. By reading this book, leaders will be challenged to think more intentionally about how they build trust, competence, dynamism, immediacy, and how they become more forward-thinking.
