Product reviews for Imperfect Leadership in Action

Sir David Carter, former National Schools Commissioner 

The whole concept of imperfect leadership is one that has resonated with leaders across the education system since Steve Munby published his first book in 2019. I have spoken with many school and trust teams who have been inspired by the notion that we learn more from what we get wrong than we do from that which we get right. 

This new book, a follow-up written in collaboration with Marie-Claire Bretherton, takes the thinking a stage further by asking the practical questions that lead to better implementation in different settings. Marie-Claire is one of the education system’s best collaborators and school improvers and her personal reflections add weight and insight to Steve Munby’s excellent thinking. 

Imperfect Leadership in Action should form part of every school leadership team’s library. Whether you read it as an individual leader – curious about the notion of imperfect leadership – or as a member of a team wrestling with challenges that we face today, I cannot recommend the book highly enough.
