5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks a million for your bravery!, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book stirs the embers and relights the passion. Amidst the constant flux of education at the moment, Dave Harris steps forth with clear and practical advice to remind all school leaders why we need to be bolder, brighter and braver than ever before.

Thinking of headship or just starting out - Brave Heads is a no-brainer!

This was an interesting read which consolidated some views and made me consider others. A good, simple starting point for someone taking on the role of headship for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all heads and deputies who think they are banging their heads against a brick wall!, 23 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Brave Heads: How to lead a school without selling your soul (Paperback)
I often start these books and never complete them. This is one I read from cover to cover. At times you may feel that David Harris is a little too full of self congratulations at the work he has done as a head but just as I was beginning to get annoyed he was able to be truly self effacing and reflect on his behaviours and impact as a head. Useful suggestions throughout that have lead to some good discussions at SLT. In summary a must for all heads and deputies thinking that they are banging their heads against a brick wall.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide to remind you why..., 4 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You chose this career. As a deputy head this has inspired me to seek out a headship now over the next 12 months.
I like the premise that you don't need to the "perfect super head" to succeed, you just need to believe in your convictions and stay strong.

Many thanks Mr Harris!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reassurance for all leaders, 2 Aug. 2013
Dave Harris has written a book that shows that bravery and humility can exist side by side. This is a guide for leaders at any level that simplifies a wealth of research and boils it down to practical and simple tips. The best advice I have yet come across (and entertaining too) Some books leave you with a real buzz and make you want to get straight into school to begin to incorporate some of their ideas, this is one!
