"Leading Every Day: 124 Actions for Effective Leadership, Second Edition underscores the cumulative effects of particular day-to-day leadership acts as practiced throughout the organization. The kinds of actions recommended by the authors of this practical and valuable book shape the school community and nurture a commitment to continuous improvement no matter how challenging the environment in which a school resides."

"The new edition is an indispensable resource for the practiced leader…(with) contemplations that can guide, inform and challenge all school leaders' thinking and . . . moral ethical actions. With the investment of just a few minutes each day, the reader can have an in-depth consideration of why we do this work."
-Randall B. Lindsey, Director, Education Leadership Doctorate Program, California Lutheran University  

"Among the plethora of resources on leadership, this book stands out for its simple, profound way of connecting personal reflections on leadership to the actual work of leaders to improve teaching and learning. It is a must-have resource for anyone committed to leading, supporting, and sustaining research-based and data-informed improvements in education."
-Page Keeley, Senior Science Program Director, Maine Mathematics & Science Alliance

Inspire the leader in you and positively influence the people around you!

As our society faces more complex challenges, the demand for effective leadership grows. Leaders, especially education leaders, often need to solve complicated problems quickly with limited resources. Understanding their own leadership styles, roles, and practices enhances the impact that leaders have every day. In this follow-up to their best-selling 2003 NSDC Book of the Year, the authors provide four full months of contemplations centered on the major areas in which leaders work.

Leading Every Day offers direction on providing high-quality leadership amid turbulent times. Modeling the philosophy that leadership exists in all of us, the authors inspire educators to lead in big and small ways. This second edition offers:

  • Inspirational stories illustrating effective leadership
  • Cogent quotations for educators to carry with them each day
  • Actionable advice that can be implemented today
  • Invitations for larger discourse that can change the lives of leaders and the lives of those they lead
  • The latest research on best practices in leadership, change, professional development, and group leadership

Exploring leadership and leadership potential is an important step for everyone. This book highlights a path of exploration for veteran and aspiring leaders alike.
