Educational Leadership: Personal Growth for Professional Development
Tomlinson, Herry
SAGE Publications (UK)
Henry Tomlinson discusses how important it is that leaders of educational organizations know themselves in order to be successful. How that process of self-knowing can be undertaken is carefully developed in the first six chapters through discussion of a variety of approaches for this. The focus is initially very much on personal development through self-understanding and self-management because this has to be the basis for profound professional development. This book is organized into the following 20 chapters: (1) "Self-Management and Personal Development"; (2) "Self-Understanding, Personality and Psychometric Instruments"; (3) "Emotional Intelligence"; (4) "360-degree Feedback"; (5) "Accelerated Learning, the Brain, Competencies and Interviews"; (6) "Neurolinguistic Programming and Professional Development: Improving Communication Skills"; (7) "Developing Creativity, Intuition and Innovation in Schools"; (8) "Managing Stress and Managing Time"; (9) "Career Development and Development as a Professional"; (10) "Training, Coaching and Mentoring"; (11) "Interpersonal Skills, Decision-Making and Team Learning"; (12) "Leadership Development"; (13) "Performance Management"; (14) "Ethics, Values, Vision, Mission and Gender"; (15) "Culture, Change and Organizational Health"; (16) "Strategy"; (17) "Quality Models"; (18) "The Learning Organization and Knowledge Management"; (19) "Business Process Re-engineering: Achieving Radical Change"; and (20) "Work and Life: Achieving a Balance and Planning for the Future". An index is also included.
