It deepens professional conversations to include often neglected issues of cultural diversity, and is a morally compelling guidebook for competent right action in educating all children."???Carolyn McKanders, Educational Consultant, Family and Child Therapist"A fresh approach, with strategies for using standards to improve the diverse learning environment for all students. Coaches will gain deeper understandings of their own assumptions as they guide others in interpreting personal unquestioned assumptions." ???Richard A.

It offers a practical strategy for being mindfully attuned to???and leveraging???cultural diversity to optimize student learning. To boost educators??? cultural confidence and consciousness, while honing their coaching skills, this interactive resource features: Action-planning worksheets Reflective questions Coaching maps and conversation vignettes Real-life examples through a composite case story Teachers, coaches, counselors, staff developers, and administrators will gain inspiration and indispensable insights to break down cultural barriers through enlightened coaching.

Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.

Delores B. Lindsey, Ph.D., retired as Associate Professor of Education at Cal State San Marcos, San Marcos, CA, but did not retire from the education profession. As a former middle grades and high school teacher, assistant principal, principal, and county office of education administrator, her primary focus is developing culturally proficient leadership practices aimed at closing educational gaps. She helps educational leaders examine their organizations' policies and practices, and their individual beliefs and values about cross-cultural communication. Her message to her audiences focuses on socially just educational practices, culturally proficient leadership practices, and diversity as an asset to be nurtured. Dr. Lindsey offers keynote address and facilitates educators to develop their own inquiry and action research. Her favorite reflective question is: "Are we who we say we are?" She is also a Training Associate for Cognitive Coachingsm and Adaptive Schoolssm. Delores and husband Randall, her favorite Sage/Corwin author, continue to co-write about the application of the four Tools of Cultural Proficiency. They enjoy working together with school districts to guide school leaders on their journey toward equity and socially just practices for all learners.
