Reframing the Path to School Leadership
A Guide for Teachers and Principals

Third Edition (Revised Edition)

Other Titles in:
Leadership | Mentoring | School Management

October 2018 | 208 pages | Corwin

The indispensable leadership companion—updated and more relevant than ever!

Part leadership manual, part short novel, this unique best-seller uses

dialogues between a novice and a master teacher and between a new

and a seasoned principal to illuminate how the simple act of viewing a

problem through different lenses—political, human resources, structural,

or symbolic—can reveal better options and solutions.


Featuring reflective questions and solid strategies for meeting real-life

challenges, the third edition also includes

• New views on building morale in challenging times

• A revamped discussion of mandates, standards, and rubrics

• A celebration of educators as skilled professionals

• Expanded conversations about hope, faith, and parental involvement


Sometimes all it takes to solve a problem is to reframe it by listening to

wise advice from a trusted mentor.
