'"Leadership for what?" ask the editors of this important new book - finally acknowledging that leadership's most important attribute is knowing where you are heading. Beginning to question the bedevilling assumption that school success is all about exams, this book is a significant step on the road from 19th to 21st century education' -
Professor Guy Claxton, author of 'What's the Point of School?'

Very comprehensive book. Aimed more at leadership within schools, and I work within HEI. However, there are many elements within the text that can be contextualised to HEI

A very important addition to the ranks of leadership texts, designed specifically for those involved in educational leadership. It is particularly strong in relation to values and beliefs. Well worth purchasing.
