Great leaders are made, not born. Written by the authors of From Good Schools to Great Schools, this sequel shows how great school leaders can be developed and how leaders can acquire the powerful personal leadership characteristics that the best administrators use to lead their schools to greatness.

Based on sound strategies and the work of Jim Collins, Gray and Streshly tackle how to build relationships, communicate effectively, exercise your personal will with humility, face brutal facts, get faculty on board, and build a school culture of self-discipline. Chapters include:

- Case studies that provide an ongoing context for professional learning

- Self-assessments that reveal your inherent leadership dispositions

- Interviews and tips from exceptional headteachers in the field

- Strategies for developing specific leadership qualities

- Application exercises that reinforce how to put the strategies into action

- Reflection activities that encourage professional growth

Appropriate for both individual and group professional development, Leading Good Schools to Greatness reveals how leadership skills can be learned and used to take your school to the next level.
