      Distributed Leadership Matters

      Perspectives, Practicalities, and Potential

      by Alma Harris

      Distributed leadership—engaging the many rather than the few in school improvement—has long been a promising theory. But it must be implemented effectively before educators and students can reap the rewards, including improved learner outcomes and stronger organizational performance. Distributed Leadership Matters offers pragmatic approaches for realizing these benefits. First, Alma Harris shows why harnessing educators’ collective expertise is an improvement strategy worth adopting. Then she details the collaborative processes that make it happen. Insights include: • How to translate the research on distributed leadership into tangible results for schools • Methods for building the social capital necessary for sustainable institutional change • How to distribute leadership widely and wisely through professional collaboration This book is the educator's guide to improving the learning outcomes of young people, whatever their context and whatever it takes, supporting teachers to be the very best they can be and ensuring that collaborative learning with impact is achievable and sustainable.

      The Multiplier Effect

      Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools

      by Lois Allen, Elise Foster, and Liz Wiseman

      Why are some leaders able to double their team’s effectiveness, while others seem to drain the energy right out of the room? In this engaging and highly practical book, leadership expert Liz Wiseman, leadership coach Elise Foster, and veteran principal Lois Allen team up to offer compelling research showing the overwhelmingly positive and exponential effect on schools getting more done without increasing the number of teachers and resources. Taking a deep dive with more than 100 of education’s best leaders, the authors explore the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and how these leaders attract and develop talent, as well as harness new ideas and energy to drive educational innovation. These five disciplines are not based on innate talent; indeed they are skills that every educator can learn to use – even when steeped in lifelong Diminisher settings. By practicing these disciplines, leaders learn how to - Attract top teachers to their school • Create an intense environment that demands people’s best thinking • Drive sound decisions by constructing debate and decision-making forums • Give their team a sense of ownership for responsibilities and results
