Description

Description

Turn adversity from fearsome foe to welcome friend.

Ordinary resilience is not enough to inspire teams to greatness. Effective leaders must welcome adversity and harness it for positive change that creates results and makes life and work more joyful.

Follow stories of successful educators to discover how to harness the power of leadership resiliency in education. Find out why it matters and how you can be a catalyst for bouncing forward in your own environment. Drawing on the latest research from organizational psychology and her experiences as a transformational leadership coach, Elle Allison Napolitano helps readers by:

  • Defining leadership resiliency
  • Explaining how leadership resiliency applies in educational leadership
  • Showing you how to find it in yourself
  • Outlining steps to make your leadership resilience visible
  • Providing a rubric to gauge the resiliency of your organization

Bounce forward from adversity to lead a successful learning organization that can face new challenges and build for the future.



Bounce Forward is a wonderful book that is at once as realistic as it is inspiring. Read it and it will take you deeper into your life, past, present and future. It will bring you tears, but ultimately it will put a fresh bounce in your step.”
—From the Foreword by Michael Fullan
