How teachers teach depends on their motivations, capacities, and the conditions under which they work. If the conditions in which they work are not supportive and caring, teachers have less incentive to teach at peak levels. As such, students who do not have supportive and caring classrooms have less incentive to perform and learn at levels at which they might be capable.

Based on a groundbreaking study of "soft conditions" (i.e. supportive relationships; school climate) and their effects on teachers' work, well-known author, Kenneth Leithwood, offers for school leaders a path toward building this important and often hidden infrastructure of quality teaching. School leaders will learn how to craft the conditions that support all their teachers so that teaching and learning, the work of schooling, can be conducted at maximum levels.

"Clears out the bureaucratic techniques of impersonal management and focuses the core of leadership on dealing with school change as a most human endeavor. When all is said and done, the quality of education revolves around the aspirations, commitments, and wellness of teachers giving their best." -- Carl Glickman, Scholar in Residence
"Placing principals squarely in the center of school culture and reform, the authors ask the oft-neglected question, 'What can leaders do about school culture and how teachers react to it?' Educators and policy makers alike will come away from this book with the revelation that leading with teachers' emotions in mind is the rational choice." -- Pat Maslin-Ostrowski, Professor of Educational Leadership
"Aiming straight at the heart, the authors produce theoretical, empirical, and conceptual evidence to significantly recast leadership for the standards-based reform era. Focusing on teachers' and leaders' emotions alike, they provide a new set of leadership basics and demonstrate how leaders can develop a culture of care and connectedness and inspire rich and collaborative discourse among educators while improving student achievement." -- Jo Blase, Professor of Educational Leadership
"From job satisfaction and morale to stress, burnout, engagement, and commitment, this book develops a leadership approach that accounts for teacher emotions and strives for maximum achievement on all levels. Educator collections will find this an invaluable approach." -- California Bookwatch, June 2008
