Gain invaluable insights while learning the processes, activities, and phases of principal mentoring!

Mentoring new principals is a professional gift that leaders can give to incoming colleagues to speed them on the path to full effectiveness. This invaluable guide will help jump start the process by providing an overview of the key components and phases of principal mentoring and adult learning. Mentoring Principals supplies the architecture for formal mentoring, while drawing on the true case experiences of the co-authoring team of a real mentor and his mentees. Contributed wisdom and tips from expert mentors around the country expand and enrich these case studies. Intended to support the needs of mentors, mentees, and new principals, this indispensable handbook provides direction in the "art" and "how to" of mentoring.

Five distinctive sections contained in the book are:

  • Supporting data and rationale for mentoring
  • A guide to begin your own mentor program
  • Formal mentoring agendas spanning the academic year and linked to NAESP standards for principals
  • Stories of job-embedded mentoring moments
  • Tips from leading mentors, their own stories and lessons learned

Mentoring Principals brings to life the issues and crises that new principals are likely to encounter, while providing models for the mentor to guide, support, and encourage, but to ultimately leave decisions and responsibilities with the new principal.
