Leadership Mentoring: Maintaining School Improvement in Turbulent Times (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


Today, school systems face the challenge of developing the next generation of school leaders. This means more than simply hiring promising new leaders-it requires developing an effective mentoring program. True leadership mentoring must be carefully crafted with highly educated mentors and prepared proteges. But what are the elements of a quality leadership-mentoring program? This book answers six fundamental questions that school systems interested in creating a leadership-mentoring program should consider: * How might a district interested in leadership-mentoring organize their work? * What background is available in current literature on leadership-mentoring? How might the literature serve as an effective basis for program development? * What theoretical framework can planners use to organize their program so that it will have unity and best respond to the hardest questions facing building leaders? * What example of leadership-mentoring, which uses this theoretical framework, can be studied so that we can understand the emerging model in a naturalistic setting? * What are the qualities of a fully-developed model for leadership-mentoring? * How might such a program be implemented and connected to larger district priorities? Leadership Mentoring also shows readers how to use new concepts such as Multiple Ethical Paradigms and Turbulence Theory to help new leaders respond to the ethical dilemmas that are a part of their new assignments. Chockful with answers to crucial questions about leadership-mentoring, school districts will finally be able to face the task of developing new leaders with greater confidence.
