Leading: A handbook for aspiring leaders (School Management 1)

The first two chapters of this book guides the reader through the steps to take in order to get on the first rung of the management/leadership ladder while subsequent chapters illustrate the development of leadership skills. The first steps in management and development as a leader are examined in detail with a further substantive chapter on Human Resource Management – outlining the management of the most important resource in any organisation. Each chapter is subdivided into several sections detaining aspects of leadership development. The examples in the book are largely taken from the secondary education sector where the author was a headteacher for 23 years.Although the observations come from the author’s work in the education sector, approaches to leadership are common across a range of industries. Leadership is examined from a particularly personal viewpoint, examining approaches the author tried and the challenges that were faced.The author gives clear advice on how to succeed, such as: “work hard in any job you are given, contribute to team-working. Be clear about the tasks you are asked to do and be good at completing on time. Where possible build good relationships with everyone you work with – treat them as individuals and be supportive and encouraging. Speak up when you have something worth saying. Take on responsibilities that aren’t part of your duties – volunteer when you can deliver.”
