Keys to School Leadership

A practical guide for current and aspiring school leaders

Author(s): Phil Ridden and John De Nobile

Publisher: ACER Press 2012

Keys to School Leadership provides a compelling and timely review of the fundamental principles underpinning leadership success in schools today. Phil Ridden and John De Nobile apply a fresh, innovative and contemporary approach to the meaning of school leadership, the notion of team leadership and the implications for practice. They engage with emerging issues and anticipate future trends, taking the concept of leadership beyond the classroom, beyond the school and into the wider community.

Each chapter contains practical ‘Reflect’, ‘Shift the Focus’, ‘Make it Personal’ and ‘Case Study’ sections that scaffold the developing themes, encouraging the reader to adapt and relate the material to their own specific context and circumstance. The theory-based ‘Further Investigation’ sections provide a range of pertinent resources for those wishing to learn more.

Moving from negotiation to collaboration, from empowerment to succession and from leadership to influence, Keys to School Leadership embeds a critically reflective mindset not just for principals,
but for all school-based people who lead or who aspire to lead.
