"Consider this a lexicon of Sergiovanni's best images and insights for school leaders from over his many years of contribution to education. Assembled here in one tidy volume, 'the best of Tom' is only an arm's length away. With his customary clarity and focus, these essays remind us of the vital role that morality, relationships, purpose, and artistic action play in making schools serve kids and community. A great resource for every principal, teacher leader, and system administrator."
Gordon A. Donaldson, Jr., Professor of Education
University of Maine
"A seminal collection of work from the foremost scholar of educational leadership of the last half century."
Joseph Murphy, Professor
Peabody College at Vanderbilt University
"Tom Sergiovanni has led the field of educational leadership toward a paradigm shift. This old paradigm was focused on concepts like organizations, technical rationality, and leadership by authority, personality, and bartering. The new paradigm is characterized by concepts like moral community, value added leadership, purposing, professionalism, collegiality, craftsmen leaders, and the virtues of leadership. When you open Rethinking Leadership you will enter a treasure trove of revolutionary ideas that will stir your soul - and change your concept of leadership forever."
Stephen P. Gordon, Professor and Co-director
National Center for School Improvement, Texas State University
"A powerful collection of articles by North America's foremost authority on moral leadership. A comprehensive, coherent and definitive treatment of all aspects of moral leadership: What it is, how to develop it, how to lead in the learning community, and value - added leadership for the future!"
Michael Fullan, Professor of Policy Studies
University of Toronto
"To be successful, a leader must master the management of attention, meaning, trust, self, paradox, effectiveness, follow-up, and responsibility. Sergiovanni's work provides a different way to think about leadership—as an individual and as a leader of leaders."
The School Administrator, August 2007
American Association of School Administrators
"Establishes a framework for a new leadership strategy that is morally based, with the concept of community building at its core. Wonderful and inspiring."
Journal of Educational Research, Vol. 101, No. 1
This course was designed for current education professionals which included classroom teachers, counselors, administrators, etc. This book was able to provide a framework of what is required for school leadership.
