The indispensable leadership companion—updated and more relevant than ever!
Part leadership manual, part short novel, this unique best-seller uses
dialogues between a novice and a master teacher and between a new
and a seasoned principal to illuminate how the simple act of viewing a
problem through different lenses—political, human resources, structural,
or symbolic—can reveal better options and solutions.
Featuring reflective questions and solid strategies for meeting real-life
challenges, the third edition also includes
• New views on building morale in challenging times
• A revamped discussion of mandates, standards, and rubrics
• A celebration of educators as skilled professionals
• Expanded conversations about hope, faith, and parental involvement
Sometimes all it takes to solve a problem is to reframe it by listening to
wise advice from a trusted mentor.
