Product Description

Review

" Change Leadership is a truly wonderful and brilliant book. The ideas are powerful, deep, comprehensive, and grounded with tools to turn them into transformative action. A rare book that captures both the awful difficulty of causing change and a way to do it." ––Michael Fullan, former dean, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto; author, Leading in a Culture of Change "The Change Leadership Group at the Harvard School of Education has, through its work with educators, developed a thoughtful approach to the transformation of schools in the face of increasing demands for accountability. This book brings the work of the Change Leadership Group to a broader audience, providing a framework to analyze of the work of school change and exercises that guide educators through the development of their practice as agents of change. It exemplifies a new and powerful approach to leadership in schools." ––Richard F. Elmore, Gregory Anrig Professor of Educational Leadership, Harvard Graduate School of Education " Change Leadership uses believable examples and provides common sense analysis of the challenges facing today’s educators. It is a well–written, straightforward guide with clear explanations and practical solutions. I found it useful and entertaining." ––Thomas W. Payzant, superintendent, Boston Public Schools "Caught between the imperative of preparing students for the next half–century and the political mandate for short–term performance improvement on standardized tests, many educators are dropping by the wayside but a few are stepping forward with new leadership skills and vision. Working with such leaders, Tony Wagner, Robert Kegan, and their colleagues have created an invaluable guidebook for those with the courage to have conviction without answers and the openness to learn together." ––Peter M. Senge, founding chairperson, SoL; senior lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; author, The Fifth Discipline "There seem to be more books on school reform than there are schools in the United States. This one stands out. The volume, which grows out of a five– year study of school reform across the country, uniquely integrates both the organizational and human elements required for success." ––Arthur Levine, president, Teachers College, Columbia University
