Bring out the best in your team and yourself!Why are some leaders able to stimulate, motivate, and get so much more out of their teams while others seem to de-motivate and diminish their teams? Based on more than 50 interviews with school leaders, this book identifies the five most important disciplines that help leaders think and act more like multipliers, bringing people together and giving others on the team more freedom, power, and responsibility, which ultimately generates self-worth and satisfaction. As a multiplier, you will learn how you can: Attract the top teaching talent to your schoolLiberate your staff to do their best and step out of their comfort zonesMake decisions rather than promote unproductive debateInvest in human capital
