Educational Leadership

Personal Growth for Professional Development

by Tomlinson, Harry

This book outlines personality and identity, motivation and reward strategies, the emotions of leadership and the values and ethics which underpin professional integrity. Using a practical but evidence-based approach, Harry Tomlinson outlines how to develop creativity, assertiveness and emotional intelligence using techniques such as neuro-linguistic programming to model excellence.

The author shows how teachers can use work on effective people to develop their own performance and to develop high performance teams. The psychology of success, the new professional career model, and the new psychological contract with schools as learning organizations can all contribute to this.

At school level, the book includes coverage of

· strategic planning and future-thinking

· business process re-engineering

· organizational health, culture and climate

· schools as organizations,

· knowledge management

· benchmarking for professional development

· quality processes

This book is for all teachers who are determined to enhance their professionalism.
