Overview

As a school leader your time is in short supply. Everyday you face a dizzying array of competing demands that you must juggle on a very tight budget. And while you strive to become a great educational leader, the time and attention you need to devote to this pursuit is also in limited supply.

The Daily Disciplines of Leadership is a comprehensive and down-to-earth manual for school leaders that addresses the daunting challenges that today's principals, superintendents, and teacher-leaders face on a daily basis. Written by Douglas Reeves— a leading authority on academic standards, performance assessment, and accountability— the information in this book is based on his extensive experience working with educators, administrators, and school board members from across the country and internationally. Reeves discusses the basic purpose of leadership, presents four key leadership archetypes, and offers practical recommendations for action. Covering a wide range of topics—from accountability systems to personal communications—this book will serve as the 'go to' resource for novice and seasoned school leaders alike.

In The Daily Disciplines of Leadership, Reeves outlines three critical insights that will help educational leaders succeed. The book shows how to redefine educational accountability to an integrated system that includes leadership, teaching, and curriculum for student achievement; abandon initiatives that are ineffective, obsolete, and superfluous; and develop the skills to evaluate, coach, and develop future leaders.
