Understanding Leadership reviewed by SchoolsWeek

January 03, 2017

"This is not just a(nother) book on leadership, it’s one that stands out from the others in style and substance... If you are brand new to leadership or taking up a new role, refreshing yourself with this book would be nothing short of essential"

Libby Nicholas and John West-Burnham‘s title Understanding Leadership: Challenges and reflections has been given a glowing review by SchoolsWeek.

Click here to read the review and here to take a look inside the book’s sample pages.

Applying research and case studies from inside and outside the educational canon, Libby and John challenge prevailing orthodoxies and invite readers to reflect on their personal understanding as the basis for translating theory into practice. All leadership behaviour is based on a number of fundamental personal assumptions about the nature of human relationships and the basis on which human organisations function. Understanding Leadership helps leaders make their implicit understanding explicit and so informs and aids development of professional practice.
