Build on your staff’s strengths for optimized leadership

Best-selling author Sheryl G. Feinstein demonstrates how educational leaders can apply a popular business prototype of leadership strengths and the latest brain research to lead effectively. Her new book, co-authored by veteran administrator and instructional leader Robert W. Kiner, outlines four leadership styles―executer, relationship builder, influencer, and strategic thinker―and shows how to capitalize on them to:

  • Create a positive school culture
  • Mentor and supervise teachers
  • Keep track of standardized testing
  • Foster community partnerships
  • Use data to inform curriculum and instruction

The authors link current cognitive research with the challenges of educational leadership to make clear the links between neural wiring, learning, and leading.

Review:

"The authors help fill a void in recent work at the intersection of the brain sciences and education. The potential for neuro- and cognitive sciences to inform educators remains largely untapped. Principals and other school leaders should take a keen interest in the ideas set forth in this unique volume." (Mariale Hardiman, Assistant Dean and Dept. Chair, Neuro-Education Initiative 2011-01-06)
