A central role of any educational leader is that of an accomplished communicator-one who can relate to diverse communities, promote cooperative interaction, and unify stakeholders around the larger cause of quality education for every student.

This sixth volume in the Soul of Educational Leadership series provides innovative ideas on diplomacy and practical strategies for strengthening communications skills. With contributions from top leadership figures like Paul D. Houston, John R. Hoyle, Richard Bagin, and Daniel H. Pink, this resource emphasizes the importance of clear and purposeful communication in gaining support, avoiding misunderstandings, and establishing productive communitywide relationships. Individual chapters demonstrate how readers can:

- Create dynamic, effective districtwide communication systems

- Respond to district challenges and issues

- Use electronic communication tools effectively

- Secure and increase funding for their schools and districts

- Increase avenues for informing the public about issues that affect schools and students

This insightful book offers all school leaders a rich array of creative, thoughtful communication approaches to empower their leadership and inspire everyone who has a stake in preparing today's students for tomorrow's challenges.

"The writing is easy to follow and provides good insights. This is important material for superintendents, aspiring superintendents, and all school leaders." -- Paul G. Young, Executive Director
"This book creates an awareness of the many tools we can use to communicate. The real-life examples help the reader see the need to keep all lines of communication open." -- Ralph A. Gilchrest III, Principal
"Today's school leaders must be both excellent communicators and skilled diplomats. It's no longer sufficient to plot a course to meet the needs of students. Leading a school system through change requires the mastery of persuasive communications and interpersonal relations that will earn the leader the respect of constituents and faith in his or her decisions. This book offers sound guidance on new and established ways to connect with the community to advance high-quality education for all students." -- Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director
