How should you present ideas to ensure the most success in effecting change? Discover the oft-overlooked but critical civilities of leadership that will give you a distinct edge. Using vignettes and thought-provoking exercises, Brubaker illustrates the rituals, attitudes, and skills successful leaders exhibit, allowing them to make meaningful connections with audiences and foster positive and productive school cultures. The Charismatic Leader offers SAGE advice for getting the most out of every interaction, whether a one-on-one conversation, interview, or presentation,or a large group.

Reviews

he book addresses an often undervalued need for civility, humanity, and genuineness in leadership and provides the professional with the tools to begin a process of self-assessment and learning. This book can be a tool for professional development workshops or for university courses in which the book will be studied and discussed in groups. It reminds the reader that teaching is essentially an act of love and charity. -- Susan Clark, Professor of Education As a six-year administrator I found the book highly stimulating and relevant to day-to-day challenges in the field of education. It resurrects the terminology of presentation of self as a core, but often neglected, concept that is essential to success in the field of education. -- Michael Douglas, Graduate Research Assistant Dale Brubaker does a masterful job of reminding every leader of the powerful messages they convey through their personal and professional behavior. All too often the conversation about schools and school leadership is characterized by high demands, unsubstantial charges, and vicious attacks. Brubaker dares to talk about the importance of restoring civility and table manners to the leadership repertoire. This engaging book provides leaders with practical strategies that they can immediately use to modify their own actions and reframe the relationships among school personnel and the work of schools. Bravo! Every current or aspiring school leader should read this important work. -- Dr. Ronald D. Williamson, Professor This exciting new guide to becoming an authentic leader is essential for new leaders who wish to be effective from day one, and for seasoned leaders who seek personal and professional revitalization. As you begin the process of self-assessment and take responsibility for your own professional development as a leader, you will discover how you can motivate others in your organization to do the same. -- BIZlife Magazine, November 2005 Brubaker engages the reader in a relaxed, yet powerful, conversation that leads to important truths about civility and leadership. The stories, strategies, and activities in this important book invite a deeper look into the essential qualities of a leader. and I highly recommend it. -- John A. Harrison, President I heartily endorse Dale Brubaker's latest book on civilities and the presentation of self as a natural extension of his essays, commentaries and books over the past several decades. -George E.
