Keys to School Leadership

By Phil Ridden, John De Nobile

Through a contemporary lens, this book reviews the core concepts that are fundamental to success in school leadership and expands on these concepts to reveal emerging directions for school leaders. Keys to School Leadership is written by a principal and an academic whose dual perspectives inform and underpin this practical and highly accessible guide. Each chapter contains sections that scaffold the developing themes, including 'Reflect,' 'Shift the Focus,' 'Make It Personal,' and 'Further Investigation.' Moving from leadership to influence, from individual to team, from classroom to school and beyond, Keys to School Leadership embeds a critically reflective mindset not just for principals, but for all school-based professionals who lead or who aspire to lead. The book includes case studies that provide practical applications and will assist the reader to connect the ideas with their own individual thinking and experience.
