Product reviews for The Unexpected Leader

Natalie Perera, Executive Director and Head of Research, Education Policy Institute
While hundreds of titles have already been published on the demands and complexities of school leadership, this brave and honest book explores the issues of workload, imposter syndrome and mental health through the stories of real people. Between these accounts and Iesha's own personal insights, the implications of the challenges facing the education system -“ such as funding, accountability and teacher recruitment and retention -“ are all brought to life.

Iesha's refreshingly simple yet convincing narrative challenges the stereotypical view of what makes a great leader and tells us it's okay to be different. The experiences she has collated, together with her analysis of the lessons we can learn from them, make The Unexpected Leader an invaluable resource for teachers, leaders and policy makers alike.
