Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development,
Pub. Date:
Former principals Kohm and Nance explain tools for school administrators that will help them to become collaborators and learners rather than top-down, authoritarian leaders. They describe how shifts in their own thinking changed their leadership process and how other principals can benefit from the ideas, which are organized around four themes: listening to all voices, which emphasizes including all perspectives; seeing possibilities; asking the right questions, which stresses that leadership is the responsibility of everyone in an organization; and creating collaborative cultures, which focuses on changes in organizational structure that create supportive learning. In explaining these themes, they draw on ideas from books by Peter Senge, Margaret Wheatley, Linda Lambert, and Michael Fullan, and discuss communication, assessing risk, resource allocation, and systems thinking, among other topics.
