Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Anyone who is building a team, trying to sustain a collaborative group, facilitating a meeting, or participating on a committee will appreciate this set of 'directions,' the practical how-to's of collaborative leadership. . . . It is not a book to peruse and place on the shelf; it is a desktop reference to support change and positive visions of collaborative cultures. —Michael Dolcemascolo, assistant director of curriculum, instruction, and assessment for the Onondaga-Cortland-Madison County Board of Cooperative Educational Services, NY, and training associate for the Center for Cognitive Coaching, and the Center for Adaptive Schools
