Leading for Results: Transforming Teaching, Learning, and Relationships in Schools
Sparks, Dennis
Corwin Press
Authentic or transformational leadership flows from self-awareness regarding intentions, values, and feelings and its influence is reflected in a leader's actions. "Leading for Results, Second Edition," focuses on the educational leader's role in actualizing human potential and unleashing individual and organizational energy, while promoting extraordinary performance in "ordinary" people by first changing within oneself. In this updated edition featuring 18 new interactive essays, Dennis Sparks shows how school leaders can promote extraordinary changes, be accountable, and achieve meaningful results for schools, districts, and their personal lives. Using bold theories about education, leadership, teaching, and student learning, you'll learn how to make change happen, create usable strategies, commit to action, and achieve goals by: (1) Examining your assumptions and producing results-oriented thoughts, words, and actions; (2) Deepening your understanding of important issues related to the interpersonal challenges of change; and (3) Engaging in next-action thinking and applying what you've learned. This powerful resource helps leaders to recognize their capacity for making a tremendous difference in their organizations, ensuring ultimate success! After the Acknowledgments, About the Author, Introduction and How to Use This Book, this handbook is divided into three parts: (1) Transformation Through Clarity and Creation; (2) Transformation Through Interpersonal Influence; and (3) Transformation Through a Culture That Promotes Professional Learning, Teamwork, and Continuous Improvement. This handbook concludes with an Index.
