In this book, internationally recognized writers on leadership explore what makes leaders passionate about their role and their schools.

The contributors show that leadership must move on from the realm of a role or job towards an energy and commitment for enhancing children's learning and children's lives. They maintain that passion must be the driving force that moves vision into action, through a range of chapters from internationally known contributors Brent Davies, Tim Brighouse, Geoff Southworth, Chris Day, John MacBeath, Andy Hargreaves, Dean Fink, John Novak, Brain Caldwell, Alan Flintham, and Kenneth Leithwood. What sustains and drives leaders to achieve in a changing and challenging educational environment? What maintains their passion for education and children's achievement? This book seeks to answer these questions.

The book is essential for all students in leadership programs and educational professionals looking to achieve self and organizational improvement.
