The purpose of this book is to provide a toolkit of resources, activities, and steps, towards building teams to assess and design distributed leadership practice among school leaders. The author defines leadership practice as the interactions between leader and follower, relating to a situation over a period of time. The most important task is to help leaders perfect their performance of these daily routines through observation and reflection of their own practice. The intent of this book is to give school teams a new way of thinking about the relationship between leadership practice, classroom performance, and student achievement. This book is designed to help school leaders bring distributed leadership into practice, offering unique tools to help identify pitfalls in leadership within present school-wide efforts.
