Editorial Reviews

Tyll van Geel
An accessible and practical guide to educational leadership with many anecdotes and useful examples.
Michael Fullan
Langley and Jacobs have written a book that beautifully captures the practical essence of leadership. Each of the five chapters on essential skills is valuable in its own right, but it is the way that the five sets of skills are brought together that makes the book so powerful.
Robert R. Spillane
A straight-forward and exciting guide for the novice and veteran administrator in public or private schools. Jacobs and Langley have compiled a work that is not only an excellent trade tool, but also a must for professors of leadership classes, as a textbook or supplemental workbook.
Reference and Research Book News
Langley and Jacobs outline five skills for school leadership: insight, interpersonal skills, self-growth, flexibility, and keeping in touch with the community. They illustrate how the results of these traits can be seen in a positive educational environment.
Dr. Fran Murphy
Finally, a book on educational leadership that includes education! This important book carefully crafted by Langley and Jacobs coaches school leaders in the context of the messy reality of classrooms, kids, and teachers.
Alan Leis
The authors have synthesized the research in an insightful focus on five key aspects of leadership. They provide excellent examples and case studies for personal professional growth.
Jeanne M. Kabulis
As a teacher, I find Langley and Jacobs' perspective on leadership insightful, refreshing, and eminently useful both in and outside of the classroom. Their five essential skills provides an invaluable resource for educators.

5 Essential Skills of School Leadership: Moving from Good to Great 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Most books that I have read about educational leadership take the highrode approach to the actual process of helping educators leaving them without specific ways of applying the skills of leadership. 5 Essential Skills for School Leaders is a breath of fresh air offering educators real world examples and exercises that allow for the application of the skills that are addressed in the book. This is an excellent resource for all educational leaders and even those not in the education field.
