This complete resource provides staff developers with the necessary tools for training leaders at all levels of the educational system to become the catalysts for large scale, sustainable reform. Hear from practicing principals, superintendents, and educational experts; observe actual training sessions; and visit classrooms to see how the model to pursue long-term sustainability without jeopardizing short-term results works first-hand in schools. Including a DVD and matching video content, and a facilitator's guide connecting the video/DVD to the book-this all-in-one training package brings to life Fullan's eight elements of sustainability: (1) Public service with a moral purpose; (2) Commitment to changing context at all levels; (3) Lateral capacity-building through networks; (4) Intelligent accountability and vertical relationships; (5) Deep learning; (6) Dual commitment to short-term and long-term results; (7) Cyclical energizing; and (8) The long lever of leadership.
