This is a powerful guidebook for new principals. More than that, it also contains valuable insight and examples to assist veteran principals in growing and improving professionally.
I feel that this is a book principals will be interested in purchasing and reading. It has practical advice and relevant examples of how the advice can and has been implemented.
I could hear the voices of some of the principals who were interviewed speaking to me. The author clearly knows how to gather information and present it in a meaningful way.
It is a valuable resource, a must-read, for current and prospective principals who wish to become exemplars in school leadership and management.
The usefulness of this book clearly lies in the author's treatment of the traits and in the resource guide and facilitator's guide at the end. The content is rich with stimulating ideas that would inspire even the most seasoned administrator.
10 Traits of Highly Effective Principals is a 'must-read' for any practitioner or aspiring principal needing direction, mental stimulation, or self-renewal.
"In all of the books I have read, this is far and away the best. Finally, a book where someone gets it! And wrapping up the book with a discussion of servant leadership is brilliant. I put these books in the hands of all of our principals, and each month at our district admin meetings, one of us presents on a chapter and opens it up for discussion. Everyone loves it and is on board. I have always been proud of the culture of our school, but this book is really helping all of us get on the same page and get the true purpose of our daily lives in education."
