A Leader's Top Task Is to Nurture Talent
Louis, Karen Seashore
Journal of Staff Development, v37 n1 p20-22, 24-25 Feb 2016
In her full essay exploring the Leadership standard in "Reach the Highest Standard in Professional Learning: Leadership," author Karen Seashore Louis offers keen insights into the question of how leaders affect the learning of other adults in a school. She writes particularly about how "school leaders can create a school culture in which all adults see themselves as part of the larger enterprise of continuous learning" (Louis, Hord, & von Frank, in press). This excerpt takes a close look at what leaders need to understand about how learners approach change and their role in helping create a culture that recognizes the humans at the heart of change.
