Leadership as Lunacy: And Other Metaphors for Educational Leadership is an innovative look at leadership models and behaviours-and what school leaders and stakeholders alike can learn from them.
The authors guide readers on a journey of "intellectual pyrotechnics," drawing you through historical perspectives and cognitive possibilities that inspire, resolve, confuse, and provoke reflection on the state of leadership in education. The authors examine:
- Various interpretations of metaphor and how metaphors have been used to define leadership
- The current debate and discourse pertaining to educational leadership models
- How metaphors can stimulate reflection and inspire self-growth.
