Overview

The keys to having an outstanding career as a school leader.

The American educational system is in crisis; trends of recent years have been extraordinarily hard on educators. An entire generation of school leaders is retiring, many of them early, and the number of candidates applying to replace them is plummeting. In many districts, applications have shrunk by nearly two-thirds. Seven Secrets of The Savvy School Leader hopes to counteract these glum statistics by giving both aspiring and experienced school leaders important survival tools, and encouraging long-term leaders to renew their faith in their own abilities.

  • Describes the innate tensions inherent in leadership
  • Explores the difference between dilemmas and problems
  • Encourages leaders to make change by making meaning
  • Offers guidance for being your best and bold self

Written an expert on school leadership who has worked closely with thousands of schools over the years, the book will help anyone serving as or considering becoming a school administrator.
