Resilient School Leaders: Strategies for Turning Adversity into Achievement
Patterson, Jerry L.; Kelleher, Paul
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Getting fired, dealing with bitter disputes, having your competence or integrity challenged--these are experiences that educators have all the time. But what's the difference between educators who triumph over adversity versus those who succumb? Blending sage wisdom and research with real stories from educators, this book introduces you to three dimensions of resilience and describes guiding principles that every educator can live by: (1) Why realistic optimism is critical; (2) How to use your Personal Strengths Triangle as an anchor; (3) Which strategies help you strengthen your confidence and competence; (4) How to harness four types of energy that will enhance your effectiveness; and (5) Ways to help school teams through tough times.
