Description: "Here is a rare blend of storytelling and analysis, brought together in a book that is both insightful and inviting. Lee Bolman and Terry Deal allow us to see our schools, and ourselves, through the lens of imagination rarely found in educational literature, offering embattled and discouraged educators the precious gifts of vision and hope." Parker J. Palmer, author Let Your Life Speak and The Courage to Teach "I love this book! Reframing the Path to School Leadership is full of great spirit, liveliness, and energy. Bolman and Deal are master storytellers, and this tale will inspire every school leader, whether administrator, teacher, coach, parent, or student." Jim Kouzes, coauthor The Leadership Challenge and Encouraging the Heartnbsp; The key to becoming a highly effective leader is to develop powerful habits of mind! The best leaders use multiple frames or lenses to view common challenges and to solve their most difficult problems. Through a series of dialogues between a novice and a master teacher, and between a new and a seasoned principal, best-selling authors Bolman and Deal demonstrate how framingand then reframingchallenges brings clarity, helps to anticipate problems, and leads to more comprehensive and powerful leadership strategies. The four frames most commonly used by teachers and administrators are: The political frameconflict and compromise are a constant source of renewal The human resource framesharing individual needs and motives nurtures a sense of ownership The structural frameclear organizational standards and goals lead to greater productivity The symbolic frameculture, rituals, and beliefs cultivate shared values and meanings By reframing situations, educators ultimately gain more confidence and certainty in their decisions, and reduce the anxieties that can arise with difficult choices. In Reframing the Path to School Leadership, Bolman and Deal provide an optimistic view of what can go right in schools today, and what possibilities lie ahead for classroom and school leadership!
