He seeks answers from Maria, a sage whose wisdom was forged in her own hard-won business career.

The principal's role in shaping school culture by Terrence E Deal( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to explain how principals can shape school culture, this book first discusses current pressures for school reform and the different perspectives on school operations reflected in these reforms. Competing reform strategies are described, specifically, the human resources approach and the structural, political, free market, and school culture models. Aiming to link reform success to school culture and symbolic leadership concepts, the book describes organizational cultures or subcultures within the greater society and presents evidence connecting organizational culture to productivity in business and schools. Next, a description is given of how the principal shapes a school culture by fulfilling five roles: those of symbol, potter, poet, actor, and healer. Following this, the book presents five case studies of school leadership in school settings that varied according to principal incumbency, school characteristics, student abilities, and organizational history. Finally, commonalities in the leaders' tactics are summarized and discussed. Each of the principals described identified what was important, selected compatible teachers, dealt successfully with conflict, set a consistent example, told illustrative stories, and used ceremonies, tradition, rituals, and symbols to display the school's common values. The book concludes with some action guidelines, with the caveat that these will prove inadequate unless accompanied by an unquenchable desire and commitment to build cultures that support and create excellence. Included are 51 references and a classified, annotated bibliography of 25 books and articles. (Mlh)

The leadership paradox : balancing logic and artistry in schools by Terrence E Deal( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the school principal has shifted drastically in recent times. Today's principals are forced to be less concerned with developing character and more occupied with controlling behavior, moving students through the process, and sorting them into academic and vocational tracks - while also increasing scores on standardized tests. This image has brought calls for changes in the principal's role - from one that centers on providing order and efficiency to a more inspiring, value-based focus on building collaborative relationships and energetic, meaningful enterprises. But these new demands often overlook the need for managing details and coordinating complex and diverse programs and students. The Leadership Paradox shows how principals can combine the skills of administering a complex organization with sensitivity and passion - to be simultaneously efficient managers and effective leaders. Terrence E. Deal and Kent D. Peterson bring together knowledge and wisdom from organizational theory, management literature, and the experiences of practicing principals to illustrate how principals can adopt a bifocal approach - blending managerial tasks and other daily activities with the process of shaping a powerful, value-focused culture. The authors explain how, through a mixture of "knowing about" and "knowing how," principals can integrate both important sides of their work. And by blending and harmonizing the technical and symbolic aspects of their roles, school leaders can ultimately amplify their impact on the learning and development of all their students
Peak performance for deans and chairs : reframing higher education's middle by Susan Stavert Roper( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peak Performance for Deans and Chairs molds deans and chairs into better leaders by teaching them a new way of thinking about their universities, colleges, and departments. Reframing is the ability to examine a situation through multiple lenses, which not only enhances understanding of challenges leaders face but also suggests strategies for moving forward." "Entertaining and realistic scenarios show deans and chairs grappling with common problems as they attempt to implement change, manage the faculty, deal with budget cuts, and win over the "higher-ups." Some leaders are successful; others fail. This book analyzes the behavior of chairs and deans through political, structural, human resources, and symbolic frames. Lessons learned from the negative as well as the positive scenarios are highlighted, enabling deans and chairs to easily adapt them to their own situations." "This book is the result of a combined effort by a veteran university administrator with many years in the roles of dean and chair and by an internationally known expert on leadership. Together they have produced a rare volume that is as strong in its practical application as it is in its theoretical foundation. The fact that it is also engaging and a fast read should put it on the top of deans' and chairs' must-read lists."--Jacket
The wizard and the warrior : leading with passion and power by Lee G Bolman( Book )

Managing change in educational organizations : sociological perspectives, strategies, and case studies by J. Victor Baldridge( Book )

16 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-six articles based on social science research and the experience of practicing change agents deal with the elements necessary to understand change processes in educational organizations. These are (1) a comprehensive organizational perspective, that is, an understanding of crucial organizational subsystems and processes involved in innovation; (2) familiarity with strategies that can be used to cause and support educational changes, such as leadership dynamics, change agents, organizational politics, and the use of program evaluation processes; and (3) practical experience with the dynamics of educational change through case studies about attempts to change educational organizations. The articles concern change and innovation at both the elementary-secondary level and that of higher education. Many of the articles, since they are from a research tradition, use the social sciences to investigate change. A number of practice-oriented articles describe the experiences of applied administration to complement and broaden the research. (Author/MLF)

Becoming a teacher leader : from isolation to collaboration by Lee G Bolman( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed as a portable mentor for new teachers. Through a close and intense dialogue between a new teacher and a seasoned veteran, the novice comes to see troublesome situations more clearly, to anticipate trouble before it arises, and to develop more comprehensive and powerful strategies for leadership. Through the outcomes achieved by the book's protagonist, a highly committed and talented young teacher who persists in the face of obstacles and who learns from her mistakes, the book provides an optimistic view of the possibilities for teacher leadership. The book's approach is based on learning to use multiple "frames," each offering a different angle on the challenges of leadership. Four frames in common use among teachers as well as administrators are discussed: the human resource frame, the political frame, the structural frame, and the symbolic frame. Chapter titles include: "a New Teacher's First Day"; "Realities Burst the Bubble"; "Building Effective Relationships: The Human Resource View"; "The Tracking Wars: Dealing with School Politics"; "Student Discipline: Understanding Structure in Schools"; "'I'm Just a Great Teacher': Using Symbols To Revive the Spirit"; "Teaching and Leading: Balancing Family and Career"; "The Essence of Teaching: Leaving a Legacy"; and "The Torch Is Passed." The book concludes with an annotated bibliography of 12 publications. (Jdd)
