Exploring Leadership and Ethical Practice through Professional Inquiry is wonderfully constructed to prompt us to analyze the perplexing problems that inevitably occur when people work in the same institution, through the visions, theories, and moral principles that underlie schools at their best. Marvelous – and marvelously narrated – cases, followed by tools for inquiry and lively reflections are well-designed to engage aspiring and practicing leaders in honing the ethical principles that will guide their own work. Christine Sleeter, PhD Professor Emerita, California State University Monterey Bay Exploring Leadership and Ethical Practice through Professional Inquiry This collection of case studies is a perfect example of the potential role of professional inquiry as a professional learning approach. The truly exceptional achievement of this work is unquestionably the fact that it sought out highly reputed educators in the Ontario, national and international education communities. It is comforting to see that, in spite of their impressive collective knowledge and experience, even the commentators do not always agree when it comes to the most important areas of focus. The result is a multidimensional overview that can easily lead to provocative discussions. This work is a significant addition to the scholarship of educational leadership.

Practitioners, scholars, and teacher education students alike can celebrate reading Exploring Inclusive Educational Practices through Professional Inquiry. This rich array of case scenarios both illuminates and elaborates the meaning of inclusion in today’s schools and tomorrow’s visions. Twenty-five stories from parents, teachers, school principals, and specialists highlight the kind of experiential knowledge that won’t be found in typical research reports and district documents about inclusive education. What happens to real people—students and their families—doesn’t always resemble policies that can look so good on paper. This book makes a wonderful contribution to better understandings of the challenges of inclusion as well as the commitments positioned alongside values in order to meet those challenges. There are brave and spirited people in these pages—not the least of whom are the children themselves.Professor Luanna H. Meyer, PhD Director, Jessie Hetherington Centre for Educational Research Victoria University, New Zealand This is a book on inclusive education that leaves you with hope and ideas for action. It takes a very difficult and highly charged topic and demonstrates that it is possible to see both the trees and the forest. Michael Fullan Professor Emeritus OISE/University of Toronto We are reminded in the commentaries parents share in this book of how their passionate commitment to good education and their ideas make inclusion work. The case-study approach reveals the critical importance of their, and many other perspectives in finding solutions to what are so often dismissed as irresolveable dilemmas. They aren’t, and this book models exactly the kinds of conversations we need in schools across the country to challenge all of us to stay the course. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to make diversity and inclusion a reality in public education today. Michael Bach Executive Vice-President Canadian Association for Community Living

Are leaders born or made? Does each society get the leaders it deserves? How-and why-is leadership 'rhetoric' different from leadership in reality? l l Leadership is one of the most talked about yet least understood concepts in current business and society. This book explores how theoretical models and views of leadership have evolved over time; how leadership can be investigated from individual, organizational, and societal perspectives; and perennial dilemmas and emerging approaches in Leadership Studies. Positioning its discussion within a multidisciplinary framework that touches on management, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, history, literature, and politics, this book examines and critiques the common assumptions that inform the ways in which leaders and leadership are recognized, rewarded, and developed. It provides a valuable and thought-provoking overview for students and academics interested in leadership and management, practising leaders, leadership development consultants, and policy makers.

An introductory leadership textbook that guides students through the concept of leadership by design, a theory that involves planning each step of their leadership development, focusing on practical skills and valuable attributes that will maximize their leadership success now and into the future. Organized around five major design challenges, each challenge is explored in a stand-alone module. Students begin the leadership journey with themselves, understanding their own strengths, styles, and skills. The text moves on to relationships, exploring how leadership is a process that involves values, decision-making, motivation, and power. A module on others’ success unpacks the most effective practices of leadership and management, this is followed by a module on leading culture, teams, and community, before concluding with a section on how leaders can create lasting, positive change. The book covers foundational leadership topics with a strong emphasis on skill building and helping develop CORE competencies: confidence, optimism, resiliency, and engagement. Students are encouraged to develop these skills through experiential learning, with multiple features in each chapter such as reflective and scenario-based exercises, and case studies of internationally recognized companies like Amazon and Proctor & Gamble, along with interviews with Fortune 500 Company CEOs. There are online resources for instructors and students, which include: Test bank, PowerPoint slides, an instructor manual, teaching tips, answers to in-text questions, multimedia resources, quiz questions, and flashcards. Suitable reading for first and second year undergraduates on Leadership, Introduction to Leadership, and Leading Organizations courses

This comprehensive and integrated resource prepares leadership educators to develop their training and facilitation practice that is informed by theory, imbued with healthy leadership habits, and imparted with time-tested facilitation techniques—particularly experiential learning and reflective dialogue. There are plenty of resources for those who desire to practice leadership more effectively. What has been absent until now is an extensive and accessible compilation of resources and preparatory materials for those who facilitate the leadership training and development of others. Leadership educators are responsible for preparing the next generations of change-makers to develop the leadership skills and capacities they need to navigate the challenges in the decades ahead. They engage organizations and communities to become the holding environments and learning laboratories that empower connections of meaning and depth, embolden courageous exploration, and enable needed structural and systemic change. Jonathan Kroll offers this book as a resource to help readers become exceptional leadership educators—those who can empower others to enhance their leadership skills, capacities, and efficacy. Designed to prepare those who are charged with the leadership training and development of others, this book includes: two dozen leadership theories, models, frameworks, and topics; an extensive collection of leadership practices; and tactics for facilitating powerful training experiences that are infused with experiential learning activities and reflective dialogue. Included with each theory and practice (40+) are detailed and easy-to-follow instructions on how to facilitate specific experiential learning activities—along with go-to reflective dialogue questions—that bring the topics to life and ensure this book serves as a practical resource.
