In a culture of shared leadership, the administrator's role is more important than ever. How do administrators maintain the right balance of "loose-tight" leadership and build profound, lasting trust? What principles strengthen principal leadership? How can administrators overcome the practical obstacles of creating a professional learning community (PLC)? The Collaborative Administrator delivers strategies and heartfelt inspiration from educators who have faced these challenges and found answers.
