Exploring Leadership Book Review:

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.

Ernest Shackleton Exploring Leadership Book Review:

Broadly speaking, polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton was not successful; he never achieved any of the goals he originally set for himself. But when confronted with crushing adversity, he inspired his crew to work together to survive against incredible odds. While stranded on an ice floe 1,200 miles from civilization, Shackleton's discipline, fortitude, and heroism overcame months of hardship and peril to get all his men to safety. Here, in this brief eBook, Harvard Business School professor Nancy F. Koehn writes that his is an example from which every leader in today's unstoppable turbulence can learn.

Exploring Leadership Drivers and Blockers Book Review:

This book presents the idea of exploring both conscious and unconscious drivers and blockers in a person’s leadership development. From the outset, the authors show that exploring drivers (forces that motivate) and blockers (forces that obstruct) leads to profound self-awareness, increasing the chances that meaningful change can occur for the person. Research in the book builds on and integrates well-established leadership development approaches such as ‘immunity to change’ and ‘positive psychology’. Chapters in the book cover drivers and blockers as “assumptions” and “forces” in people that will impact their personal change efforts. The authors examine the reservoirs or sources of drivers and blockers in the mind, such as worldviews, emotions, personality traits, as well as values and motivators, and conclude by providing a tool that leadership development practitioners, coaches and scholars can use with people to explore their drivers and blockers. Throughout the work, real examples from the authors' field research are used to bring these concepts to life.

Exploring leadership and ethical practice through Book Review:

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. Serge Demers, Director School of Education, Laurentian University

Decolonizing Educational Leadership Book Review:

This book offers new ways of engagement for leaders seeking to connect theory to practice in decolonizing education. In the current climate where xenophobia, anti-immigrant sentiments, and other forms of exclusion make up much of the discourse, educational leaders need to seek ways to foreground other forms of knowledge and transfer them into their daily leadership practices. Lopez contributes to other critical leadership approaches while foregrounding a decolonizing approach that unsettles the coloniality manifested in education and school practices. Chapters provide school leaders with examples of ways they can challenge coloniality, white supremacy, and other forms of oppression in schooling that negatively impact some students and their educational outcomes.

Exploring Consensual Leadership in Higher Education Book Review:

Exploring Consensual Leadership in Higher Education explores the idea that the nature of academic work is both creative and consensual. Higher education relationships, whether between managers, staff, learners or the public sphere, are at their most effective when rooted in partnership, teamwork, collaboration and collegiality. The term 'consensual' is used because it situates new leadership models as structures based on consent, reflecting tacit traditions in education alongside ideas of leadership in other settings, including emerging industries. The aim is to celebrate achievements, encourage engagement opportunities, and add to the problem-solving knowledge-base. However, issues and problems in participatory engagement are also considered, and the borderlines between consensus (collective assent and agreement) and 'dissensus' (widespread, serious, disagreement) are examined critically. The contributors offer a range of alternative perspectives on leadership, reflecting the diverse forms and ways of working practised in different national higher educational contexts and cultural settings. The volume incorporates a variety of approaches and points of view, including stories of leadership and change, innovation projects and case studies, key interviews and insights, and collective team writing.

This book is essential reading for school leaders, policy-makers and students, and provides a comprehensive exploration of the changing leadership landscape for anyone concerned about the future of our schools.

Exploring the Role of the School Principal in Predominantly White Middle Schools Book Review:

By detailing an explanatory sequential mixed methods study grounded in Critical Race Theory (CRT), this book explores the role of effective educational leadership in developing multicultural acceptance in predominantly white schools. Drawing on the rich experiences and accounts of school principals in rural middle schools in the US, the volume asks how principals’ personal attitudes, professional experiences, and the degree to which they view themselves as a mentor and influencer within the school impacts their approach to improving multicultural understanding amongst students, staff, and faculty. The text is organized into five clear chapters, providing critical reflections, a review of the relevant literature, and in-depth discussion of first-hand data. Six key findings relating to whole-school acceptance, the role of individual principal’s attitudes, and support for teaching staff open new avenues for research and inform recommendations for the professional development of school principals. In presenting key theory and practical implications of research, this book will be crucial reading for researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the fields of educational leadership, multicultural education, sociology of education, and teacher education.

Making Sense of Leadership Book Review:

Making Sense of Leadership identifies the five key roles used by effective leaders. A practical, accessible and solution-focused book, it helps entrepreneurs, managers and leaders develop their leadership skills. The authors examine successful leaders to determine the type of leadership roles which succeed. This allows them to present five distinct roles of leadership, which are used to promote positive change and innovation. The authors encourage the reader to play with these, recognizing and taking on those elements which most appropriately suit their situation. Discovering these roles offers an important guide to the new leader, in order for them to shape their own leadership approach. It also provides interesting challenges to the existing leader who wants to refresh their stance in order to tackle a new situation. The book is supported by exercises for both individuals and groups, so that the text can also be used as a learning and development resource and for team facilitation and one-to-one coaching.
