School Leadership from A to Z: How to Lead Well Without Losing Your Way by Bradley James Davies is a collection of structured essays that seeks to support educators. It shares the author’s successes by drawing on the lessons he learned the hard way. As a school leader in the field of leadership, he navigates the reader on how to smooth the way and avoid pitfalls. He talks about the important aspects of the academic vocation, both personal and professional, that mold you into becoming the leader that your teacher and students need you to be. Part memoir and part school leadership manual, the book chronicles what the author describes as a professional crash-landing and the collateral relationship damage associated with it.
As a former teacher, I believe that School Leadership from A to Z is a treasure house for anyone who has ever stepped into a school environment. Davies writes with a great sense of humor, yet it is balanced with words of wisdom that educators can identify with. The way he arranges his essays according to alphabetical titles, like an educational song for preschool kids, is not only enticing but addresses the crucial factors in school leadership. Just like teachers, school leaders need support and opportunities for growth. This work provides them with authentic coaching that serves as a key to developing into stronger school leaders. Ultimately this promotes positive change in school environments to effectively drive school management. It’s a must-read for anyone concerned with education and with the challenges it presents to those who work behind the scenes.
