Editorial Reviews

Lawrence Simon
"Future generations of educational leaders will be in debt to Brubaker for a long overdue guide to presentation of self in educational settings. The book is realistic, clear, and sensitive to the needs of practitioners on the firing line. "
Richard D. Amme
"Dale Brubaker writes that teacher and administrator preservice and inservice education programs give too little attention to communication skills that will help educational professionals reach other adults. His book explains the implications of this unacceptable truth and moves the reader to do something about it. "
-Richard D. Amme, President
Amme & Associates, Inc.
George E. Uhlig
"I heartily endorse Dale Brubaker's latest book on civilities and the presentation of self as a natural extension of his essays, commentaries and books over the past several decades. "
-George E. Uhlig, Professor of Education
University of South Alabama
John A. Harrison
"Brubaker engages the reader in a relaxed, yet powerful, conversation that leads to important truths about civility and leadership. The stories, strategies, and activities in this important book invite a deeper look into the essential qualities of a leader. and I highly recommend it. "
BIZlife Magazine
"This exciting new guide to becoming an authentic leader is essential for new leaders who wish to be effective from day one, and for seasoned leaders who seek personal and professional revitalization. As you begin the process of self-assessment and take responsibility for your own professional development as a leader, you will discover how you can motivate others in your organization to do the same. "
Doctor - Ronald D. Williamson
"Dale Brubaker does a masterful job of reminding every leader of the powerful messages they convey through their personal and professional behavior. All too often the conversation about schools and school leadership is characterized by high demands, unsubstantial charges, and vicious attacks. Brubaker dares to talk about the importance of restoring civility and "table manners" to the leadership repertoire. This engaging book provides leaders with practical strategies that they can immediately use to modify their own actions and reframe the relationships among school personnel and the work of schools. Bravo! Every current or aspiring school leader should read this important work. "
Michael Douglas
"As a six-year administrator I found the book highly stimulating and relevant to day-to-day challenges in the field of education. It resurrects the terminology of presentation of self as a core, but often neglected, concept that is essential to success in the field of education. "
Susan Clark
"he book addresses an often undervalued need for civility, humanity, and genuineness in leadership and provides the professional with the tools to begin a process of self-assessment and learning. This book can be a tool for professional development workshops or for university courses in which the book will be studied and discussed in groups. It reminds the reader that teaching is essentially an act of love and charity. "
