Life After Death, A Scientific Proof: What, Where, Why, When and How
Leadership in Schools is designed to provide educators practical tips about the broad and complex issue of leadership. Schools are a vital social institution in this, or any, society. However, the difficult economic times school staff face, linked to the changing roles society have given to educators, makes leading in this day-and-age a very difficult proposition. In Leadership in Schools educators are given pragmatic suggestions related to topics that confront supervisors and teachers on a daily basis. How do you deal with conflict? How can I avoid the burn out that plagues many educators? Are there strategies for working with angry children? In what way can I be a more centered and balanced person in my work? These and many other questions are addressed in this work. Leadership in Schools, while a book geared toward practitioners, is also one that offers a philosophical element. Sections of the book provide lessons drawn from disparate sources and that afford educators new ideas they can apply to their practice. Sources mined for this information within the pages of Leadership in Schools include classical philosophy, Buddhist teachings, politics, literature, and psychology. In Leadership in Schools readers are offered a menu of leadership strategies that can be of assistance to them not only in their work but in their broader lives as well. Readers will come away from this book with a realization that while work is a vital part of life it cannot be the center of it. No person is solely defined by their work. Rather, to be effective in work you must be effective in life. It is with this theme that the authors of Leadership in Schools structure the essays that make up this practical look at the complex subject of educational leadership.
