Product reviews for Leadership Dialogues II

Paul K. Ainsworth, academy adviser for a system leader multi-academy trust and author of Middle Leadership and Get That Teaching Job!
In today's ever-changing world of education, we require two distinct varieties of leadership guides. On the one hand we require books that identify the best current practices, which we can then apply to our context; of equal value, and scarcer in number, are those which frame the debates that we must have in our schools and academy trusts in order to build our leadership teams.

To address today's issues, and those beyond the horizon, we need support in finding solutions, and these are best constructed through well-formed dialogue - which begins by interrogating good practice before moving on to building consensus. This is the distinct aim of Dave Harris and John West-Burnham's Leadership Dialogues II.

So whether you are looking at challenges as diverse as developing middle leadership, considering alternative staffing models or raising the achievement of disadvantaged pupils, this book will provide evidence and research to consider, questions to help form discussions and, finally, guidance to help you act to make your school or trust as effective as possible.
