Review:

"A great book designed to lighten the load of school administrators―filled with practical, easy to implement strategies, short-cuts, time-savers, and sample forms and letters. A valuable reference guide for effective school leadership." (Fran Madison-Cohee, NAESP California State Representative)

"If you are looking for insight, rejuvenation, and thoughtful, practical strategies for success in your role as a school leader, look no further. John Blaydes helps us remember why we became educators, why we want to continue, and why inspirational leadership is essential to schools." (Jane Foley, Vice President, National Educator Awards)

"Educational leaders will treasure this handy leadership guide full of powerful strategies and meaningful examples that are easily implemented. School administrators will find practical suggestions for motivating staff, preparing correspondence, and handling difficult situations. This is a must for your professional library." (Deborah Jenkins, Executive Assistant)

"Clearly, Blaydes planned well as he linked the themes from one chapter to the next. It will no doubt be a valued tool for school administrators."

(Daniel P. Gaffney, Principal)

"This book is very readable for the practitioner. The examples presented are excellent and I think principals and superintendents could use this material for staff development of teachers, paraprofessionals, and for community members." (Ronald P. Weiss, Associate Professor)
