The second edition of The Fieldbook provides 'hands on' tools to help school leaders think through and implement a 'culture building' process. Featuring 50 field-tested exercises and activities (over 25% new), it includes major new material on "toxic" environments with specific action steps for identifying and transforming a dysfunctional school culture.
