The Renewal Coaching Fieldbook outlines the seven practices that leaders can learn and develop in order to sustain their energy to do meaningful work. These practices enable leaders to bounce forward in the face of loss, create networks of support, make wise and timely decisions, and engage in personal renewal daily. Throughout are compelling stories of leaders who have overcome the challenges that seek to diminish and overwhelm them, and succeeded in doing meaningful work for a greater good. Praise for Renewal Coaching Fieldbook "Elle and Douglas have written an important book that could change the way business is done by changing the lives of people doing it. In our fantastically connected planet, worldwide commerce impacts all of us immediately, making almost nothing more important for our long term success than committing to meaningful work lives aimed at the 'greater good.' As Elle and Douglas suggest, individual happiness and global happiness will be the outcomes. If this is what you want in your own life—and I hope you do—read this book!"—Rick Foster, co-author, How We Choose to Be Happy and Happiness & Health; publisher, SustainableHappinessCourse.com "The questions in this book will help you generate new ideas and ways of thinking about your predicaments. They will provide you with the way forward to hope, excitement, and satisfaction in service of a greater good."—Daniel J. Pesut, PhD, RN, professor of nursing, Certified Hudson Institute Coach, Indiana University, Indianapolis "This is not a fairytale approach to leadership where all is good and everyone is happy. It is a skillfully written manual that addresses the challenges and hard times leaders experience and makes resiliency visible and sustained happiness attainable."—Dr. Kristine Servais, former principal and professor of leadership, North Central College, Naperville, Illinois

"A rich, much-needed remedy for the standardized institutions that comprise too much of our school system today… ideal for teachers and parents intent on resurrecting and fostering students' inherent drive to learn…An essential resource." -Daniel H. Pink, author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND “Schools that Learn is a magnificent, grand book that pays equal attention to the small and the big picture - and what's more integrates them. There is no book on education change that comes close to Senge et al's sweeping and detailed treatment. Classroom, school, community, systems, citizenry---it's all there. The core message is stirring: what if we viewed schools as a means of shifting society for the better!" -Michael Fullan, author of Change Leader and Learning Places A new edition of the groundbreaking book that brings organizational learning and systems thinking into classrooms and schools, showing how to keep our nation’s educational system competitive in today’s world. Revised and updated - with more than 100 pages of new material – for the first time since its initial publication in 2000 comes a new edition of the seminal work acclaimed as one of the best books ever written about education and schools. A unique collaboration between the celebrated management thinker and Fifth Discipline author Peter Senge and a team of renowned educators and organizational change leaders, Schools that Learn describes how schools can adapt, grow, and change in the face of the demands and challenges of our society, and provides tools, techniques and references for bringing those aspirations to life. The new revised and updated edition offers practical advice for overcoming the many challenges that face our communities and educational systems today. It shows teachers, administrators, students, parents and community members how to successfully use principles of organizational learning, including systems thinking and shared vision, to address the challenges that face our nation's schools. In a fast-changing world where school populations are increasingly diverse, children live in ever-more-complex social and media environments, standardized tests are applied as overly simplistic "quick fixes," and advances in science and technology continue to accelerate, the pressures on our educational system are inescapable. Schools That Learn offers a much-needed way to open dialogue about these problems – and provides pragmatic opportunities to transform school systems into learning organizations. Drawing on observations and advice from more than 70 writers and experts on schools and education, this book features: -Methods for implementing organizational learning and explanations of why they work -Compelling stories and anecdotes from the “field” - classrooms, schools, and communities -Charts, tables and diagrams to illustrate systems thinking and other practices -Guiding principles for how to apply innovative practices in all types of school systems -Individual exercises useful for both teachers and students -Team exercises to foster communication within the classroom, school, or community group -New essays on topics like educating for sustainability, systems thinking in the classroom, and “the great game of high school.” -New recommendations for related books, articles, videotapes and web sites -And more Schools That Learn is the essential guide for anyone who cares about the future of education and keeping our nation’s schools competitive in our fast-changing world.
