This self-help book introduces a number of scenarios that incorporate the behaviors supported by the ISLLC Standards. Its effective case scenario approach prepares prospective school leaders to address actual school challenges that occur on a daily basis. In addition, it familiarizes readers with the ISSLC Standards and enables them to conduct a self-assessment relative to meeting those standards. Unlike similar texts, the author provides responses to difficult and challenging issues that are grounded in theory and supported by best practice. This enables learners to examine, compare, and make decisions about well-documented responses and in turn, apply their own ideas. Chapter topics include Leadership in Today's Schools, Organizational Influences on Leadership, Communication in Today's Schools, Decision-Making: Quality and Acceptance, Managing Conflict in Today's Schools, and Facilitating Change in Schools. For education professionals preparing for leadership roles.

"English successfully challenges the established educational community to rethink the current state of research on school leadership in the social sciences...The inclusion of theory, discourse, and stories of recognized leaders followed by chapter learning extensions that include key concepts, movie recommendations, and prompted reflective journaling makes this book a most valuable resource for the educational leadership community." —H.J. Bultinck, CHOICE "The Art of Educational Leadership provides one of the most complete examinations of leadership that I have encountered. I admire the way it urges students to think and reflect. The format allows individual learners to focus on those materials that best fit their learning style while the numerous presentations of a single topic through the different modalities strengthens the learning. This text is a fresh, new look at leadership..." —Louise L MacKay, East Tennessee State University "Fenwick W. English returns to themes of leadership he explored in more than 20 earlier books and dozens of presentation to educator audiences. He favors "re-centering educational leadership in the humanities," rather than acting on the recommendation of the business literature, and he emphasizes the use of films as a way to humanize leadership concepts." —THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR "Excellent cogent analysis of key concepts of leadership are presented in a reader friendly style." —Saul B. Grossman, Temple University Moves beyond established notions of leadership to recognize that effective leading is about drama and performance—artistry! The Art of Educational Leadership: Balancing Performance and Accountability stresses the human side of leadership. No other text on this topic demonstrates so ably the importance of artistry in leadership in a field that has been lopsidedly dominated by concepts informed by science. Presenting the idea that leadership is an art, this book: Exemplifies a balance between the science and the art of educational leadership: The real improvement of practice is rooted in the art of application, which is about context and represents the key to leadership practice. Connects content material to self-discovery: Exercises at the end of each chapter include creating a personal, reflective journal to engage the reader in and reflect upon theories and practices presented in the book. Films are suggested for viewing to illustrate the interaction between context, culture, decisions, and outcomes. Portrays multicultural leadership in action: Biography boxes throughout the book share how multicultural educational and political leaders who have been recognized as "expert" practitioners learned the art of leadership in the public arena. This is the first book in educational leadership to sketch out a balance between the science and the art of the field. The text illustrates how performance and practice represent the art, while the delineation of the skills and conceptual models represent the science.

Over a decade ago, Kim Cameron and some colleagues decided that rather than analyze what went terribly wrong with organizations and how to prevent it, they would look at what went extraordinarily right and how to replicate it. This was the birth of positive organizational scholarship, a new field that focused on what they called “positive deviance” -- outcomes that far exceeded normal success. In his previous book Positive Leadership, Cameron outlined four leadership strategies -- Positive Climate, Positive Relationships, Positive Communications, and Positive Meaning -- that characterize exceptionally high-performing organizations. Here he takes these strategies further by laying out tactics for implementing them. Study after study (some of which are cited in the book) has shown that companies practicing positive leadership far outperform their competitors. So virtue may be its own reward, but it also delivers breakthrough results that any organization can achieve thanks to Kim Cameron’s concise, how-to guide.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. As schools progress, evolve, and change, the ways in which educational professionals lead and organize must also change. The Four Dimensions of Leadership provides readers with an invaluable guide to the latest reforms and modifications to school systems and comprehensively incorporates each major leadership principle advocated for modern-day school leaders at all levels. The text not only gives readers an opportunity to read and study leadership principles, it also provides tools to operationalize those principles and enhance their capacity to lead through the use of inventories, activities, and real life scenarios. Applicable to courses in general leadership, instructional leadership, participatory governance, and organizational behavior, this companion text confronts the challenges of the recent redefinition of leaderships roles in schools: how it is being informed by competencies, standards, and accountability measures and how this movement forges a connection between school leaders and overall student achievement. Furthermore, the book presents a leadership preparation program that confronts the challenges and complexities of these new standards using a multi-dimensional approach: 1) Understanding Self and Others; 2) Understanding the Complexities of Organizational Life; 3) Building Bridges through Relationships; and 4) Engaging in Leadership Best Practices. The book is a companion text to Practicing the Art of Leadership: A Problem-based Approach to Implementing the ISLLC Standards.
