How do we encourage meaningful growth in our schools and classrooms? With over a decade of research and development, including thousands of conversations with leaders, teachers, and students from around the world, the authors of Leadership in Education suggest that sustained and purposeful growth starts with provocation: an emotional incitement that causes reflection, a shift in thinking, and a variation in the course of action. This resource shows educators how to adopt a “leader-as-provocateur” mindset by demonstrating highly effective ways of questioning that affirm mutual respect, build trust, stimulate reflection, strengthen partnerships, and use inquiry to guide action. A quick and compelling read, this textbook is the ideal resource for graduate students in education and leadership programs across North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
