Total Leaders: Applying the Best Future-Focused Change Strategies to Education.
Schwahn, Charles J.; Spady, William G.
This book focuses on education management and the change strategies needed to guide education in the upcoming years. It is intended for those who are responsible for selecting, supervising, developing, or evaluating people in leadership positions or who want to analyze their leadership performance and plan for further professional growth. The text analyzes the purposes, patterns, performance roles, and change strategies that constitute total leadership, and it prompts leaders to work in a simple leadership model that will strengthen leadership insights, performance, and effectiveness. It examines future trends and the importance of adapting to these changes: the essence of "total" leaders, the authentic leadership domain where total leaders define purpose, the visionary leadership domain where total leaders frame vision, the cultural leadership domain where total leaders develop ownership, the quality leadership domain where total leaders build capacity, the service leadership domain where total leaders ensure support, and how to apply total leadership to the schools. (Contains approximately 102 references.) (RJM)
