From the Back Cover
The Four Dimensions of Leadership offers readers an invaluable guide to the latest reforms and modifications to school systems. Comprehensively incorporating each major leadership principle advocated for modern school leaders, the text not only gives the opportunity to read and study leadership principles, it also provides inventories, activities, and real life scenarios that turn theory into practice.
A companion text to Practicing the Art of Leadership: A Problem-based Approach to Implementing the ISLLC Standards, this book confronts the challenges currently facing leadership roles in schools: standards, accountability measures, and the connection between school leaders and overall student achievement.
- Provides a set of inventories that the reader can use to assess his or her values, beliefs and behaviors–a fundamental step in establishing a foundation for leadership.
- Contains thirteen research-based core competencies that describe the requirements for leaders of modern-day schools, define their responsibilities, and assess the extent to which they have mastered those skills.
- Includes a series of scenarios throughout the book that transform theory into practice and allow readers to assess their skills in implementing standards and attaining competencies.
- Features “Implications for Leadership” boxes at the end of each chapter that examine causes and effects in relation to leadership and leadership skills.
