Many schools are finding that through implementing a leadership as opposed to a management approach, they have the ability to successfully transform their school. Yet many schools are still unclear about what leadership is actually comprised.

Effective School Leaders gives you an insight into the human side of management and leadership and the dilemmas and conflicts which people face at all levels. Using examples of schools which have successfully implemented practical actions, it:

  • identifies the qualities and dilemmas of leadership
  • explains the expectations required by leaders in different working situations
  • examines the misconceptions about the sexual politics of leadership
  • identifies the characteristics of a good leader
  • helps you evaluate the effectiveness of your own leadership skills and those of others.

This invaluable handbook will be welcomed by all head teachers, deputy head teachers, middle managers and students on education management courses.
