Leading People and Teams in Education

£9.99

Product description

Leadership is the theme of this decade. This series provides an enormously valuable overview of all the critical issues involved in designing leadership as the main strategy for educational reform. Managing people is a key aspect of leading and the exercise of leadership skills. Institutions are complex organizations of structures and cultures reflecting the values of those who lead and work in them. This book is about those people. It deals with: the art' of leadership and leading; teams and collaborative ways of working; and the operational systems which form part of the daily practice of management in organizations. Managing people is not the same as managing any other resource. Managing people involves recognizing and dealing with the range of human nature, life choices, feelings and emotions. This book also considers the affective dimension of leadership and the exercise of management skills. It provides an opportunity for critical reflection on a range of literature which forms a framework for self-examination and institutional critique. The editors believe that the practice of leadership is fragmented and that leadership is not just for leaders but also for anyone working in an organization. The main themes covered are: - learning to be leaders - dispersed leadership - managing people and teams in organization structures - The experience of leading in practice.

Condition: Fine, with one small ink asterisk on a contents page.
