Becoming a Transformative Leader A Guide to Creating Equitable Schools Press Reviews

If you are struggling to engage in dialogue with your staff to address equity, justice, and inclusion, this is your practical guide to frame the discourse. Becoming a Transformative Leader is a must read for school-based practitioners and should be required reading for all district leadership staff. Channel your energy through the eight tenets and leave a generational legacy. -David E. Lawrence, Teacher, Principal, Chief Academic Officer This book provides a pragmatic glimpse into the application of Transformative Leadership Theory - from Shields' deep experiential perspective, as well as from the lived experience of a first-time principal. Throughout the reading of this text, the reader gains a deeper understanding of why transformative leadership is important by examining the eight tenets of transformative leadership, supported by exercises from which to construct meaning. This book would be an excellent text for any leadership preparation program whose mission is to prepare equity-focused, socially just leaders who are prepared to lead change and improvement. -Kristina A.
