The Unexpected Leader is for anyone working in education who feels they are -œdifferent-. If you feel like you are an outsider, an imposter or not good enough, then Iesha's book proves you are in good company with many of the very best school leaders.
Through a series of honest and enlightening conversations with a variety of educationalists, Iesha examines how we all have the incredible potential to lead and to change the lives of those around us by embracing openness, vulnerability and our common humanity. Those things you got into teaching for before the system kicked in, remember? The Unexpected Leader encourages you to embrace your uniqueness and to kick back, mostly against your own thinking that might be holding you down. I found the bullshit-free advice, told through the book's stories, on navigating this challenge both informative and inspiring.
