Editorial Reviews

Mark Bower
"This book is research-based and grounded in practice and practical application. A wonderful resource for ensuring high-quality learning environments that honor students' learning preferences. "
Bruce Deterding
"I was glued to the book and constantly thinking about how I could apply what I was reading to my team."
Jim Kelleher
"There are so many strengths to this book that I can't list them all, but the terrific communication tips for working with your team aresome of my favorite pieces—these alone are worth the price of the book."
Brian Doty
"This book does more to allow school administrators to follow the old admonition of 'know thyself' than many other training books. The personality type framework informs administrators how to know their staff in ways that can be applied every day. Twenty years in the principalship have given me some of the same understandings as those found in this book, but this bookallows those lessons tobe learned more quickly and with less cost."
The School Administrator
“After reading this book, I have a much clearer understanding of why staff members express differing reactions to the same situation. More importantly, I now know what I can do differently to enable better understanding for each person. I look forward to sharing the book and its concepts with our administrators.”
