- We can order this from the publisher
The fourth of these leadership tiers involves the ability to provide charismatic leadership to the organization. Charisma is the result of eight specific leadership qualities that can be understood and taught. This book examines each of those eight charismatic leadership attributes in detail. How these charismatic leadership attributes can be learned and how they relate to each other to form a comprehensive view of the charismatic leader are also addressed.
An examination of how state agencies assigned to assess and license education leaders address, or fail to address, these charismatic leadership attributes is also explored in detail.
The Fourth Tier also examines the important impact and reciprocal relationships that occur between charismatic leaders and those who follow and support charismatic leaders in pursuit of the leader's mission.

Colwell's latest book, The Fourth Tier: Leadership and the Power of Charisma, provides a clear pathway to learning about and applying the often-missing leadership development component of charisma. Leading complex 21st century schools, districts and organizations requires much more than deep knowledge of management, instruction, and mission. Understanding the nature of charisma and the role of charismatic leadership is an essential component for developing and maintaining high achieving organizations. This book is a must read for our team! -- Anna-Marie Cote, EdD, deputy superintendent, Instructional Excellence and Equity, Seminole County Public Schools, Florida
Leadership preparation programs often emphasize the priorities of management, and instructional leadership. The Fourth Tier, however, elevates the conversation with groundbreaking discussion on mission, charismatic leadership, and results. Dr. Colwell considers the attributes that create an interpersonal leader who adeptly leads schools in complex and potentially volatile times. The Fourth Tier will prepare new leaders for the challenges they will face, but is also an essential read for school leaders at any stage. After reading The Fourth Tier, it is clear that charismatic leadership should be at the forefront of any conversation on school leadership in modern times. -- Joyce A. Mundy, EdD, Director of Curriculum, Development, and Professional Learning, Delaware County Intermediate Unit
