What eight qualities would you take with you to run your desert island school??? In this inspirational book, some of the UK's most successful headteachers answer this question, talking openly about what it takes to effectively manage a school today. In candid and moving accounts we hear how they have both turned around failing schools and improved outstanding schools. Their thoughts, from vision, to courage and resilience, form the 8 key qualities which are examined in depth through the book. This is not a book about government-led initiatives, top-down models or politically-motivated attempts to change the way schools are managed. Instead, it focuses on the vital leadership ingredients that successful heads say work for them. It offers essential insights and advice into the challenges of running a school successfully and will be a source of inspiration for all school leaders and anyone thinking about moving into headship.

Leadership: Key Competencies for Whole-System Change combines the powerful decades-long work in leadership of educational authors and researchers Lyle Kirtman and Michael Fullan. Together, the authors offer seven core leadership competencies for systemic change in schools, districts, and state education systems, combined with real-world examples of the competencies in action. Their work with districts and states has led them to a view of leadership that is ideal for 21st century learning--it is suitable for novel, uncertain situations. Through this lens, they seek to encourage active pedagogical changes that can create quantifiable enhancements in learners' understanding and achievement. They illustrate how education leaders can move past failed initiatives to develop creative, productive school cultures.

An updated and revised version of the bestselling The Leadership Pipeline – the critical resource for how companies can grow leaders from the inside. In business, leadership at every level is a requisite for company survival. Yet the leadership pipeline –the internal strategy to grow leaders – in many companies is dry or nonexistent. Drawing on their experiences at many Fortune 500 companies, the authors show how organizations can develop leadership at every level by identifying future leaders, assessing their corporate confidence, planning their development, and measuring their results. New to this edition is 65 pages of new material to update the model, share new stories and add new advice based on the ten more years of experience. The authors have also added a "Frequently Asked Questions" section to the end of each chapter.
