Leadership is essential. Maybe you've shied away from leadership because you don't know what it will involve, or you feel too unsure of your own abilities. But your leadership is needed! In every sector of society, from families to businesses to churches, leadership roles remain empty, waiting for people willing and able to step up and make wise decisions that bring positive change. And, in a world with priorities vastly different from Christ's, Christian leaders are especially needed to point people to him. Preparation is essential. As essential as the leadership itself is the preparation beforehand, which is why Greg Ogden, a seasoned leader himself, has created this interactive guide that will give you the tools you need to lead well, using your unique gifts and experience. Divided into four sections, this workbook will help you develop character, postures, vision and skills as you participate in the following elements in each chapter: a memory verse a Bible study a reading a leadership exercise By working through these multiple channels of learning you'll be equipped not just with head knowledge about leadership but with true character formation and awareness of your own abilities that will prepare you for the challenges and choices of leadership. Designed to work well on your own, with a partner or with a group, Leadership Essentials by Greg Ogden and Daniel Meyer is the essential preparation tool for those who would be led and shaped by Christ to lead others with strength and wisdom.

"Bravo to Barbara Kellerman! Building upon a lifetime of scholarship and upon a popular course she has created at Harvard, Kellerman brings between the covers of a single volume the world's classic literature on leadership. Every thoughtful leader will find deep, rich rewards here." -- David Gergen, Director, Center for Public Leadership Harvard Kennedy School, Former Presidential Adviser Bolster your leadership literacy—and improve your performance as a leader or manager. Leadership, says author, leadership expert, and Harvard Professor Barbara Kellerman, "is all about what leaders should learn—but it is decidedly not, deliberately not, about what leadership education has lately come to look like." Instead, Leadership is a concise yet expansive collection of great leadership literature that has stood the test of time. As Kellerman makes clear in her extensive, authoritative commentaries, every single selection has had, and continues to have, an impact on how and what we think about what it means to lead. And every single one has had an impact on leadership as an area of intellectual inquiry—as well as on the course of human history. Part I of Leadership consists of writings about leadership: Lao Tzu—on how to lead lightly Plato—on tyrants and philosopher-kings Machiavelli—on the preservation of power In Part II, you'll find examples of what Kellerman uniquely identifies as writing as leadership—works and words that thanks to their persuasiveness and power, changed the world: Thomas Paine—Common Sense Elizabeth Cady Stanton—"Declaration of Sentiments" Rachel Carson—Silent Spring Part III presents leaders in action—individuals who seized the moment to captivate, motivate, and lead with their singular personal power to persuade: Abraham Lincoln—on war and redemption Elizabeth I—on gender and power Vaclav Havel—on the power of the powerless The selections themselves, each a classic of the leadership literature, together with Kellerman's expert commentary, make Leadership required reading for those who want to learn about, reflect on, and even apply the greatest leadership literature lessons, ever. Barbara Kellerman is the James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, and Harvard Business Review, and she has appeared on CBS, NBC, NPR, and CNN. She is author and editor of many books on leadership, most recently Bad Leadership and Followership. Kellerman is ranked by Forbes.com as among the "Top 50 Business Thinkers" (2009), and by Leadership Excellence in the top 15 of 100 "best minds on leadership" (2008-2009).

A new edition of this book is available `In conclusion this is an excellent collection of writers and their ideas. It is difficult to think where else such a resource would be available under one cover. An inspiring and valuable book that school leaders should read′ - International Journal of Educational Management `The strength of the book lies in its accessibility to both dipping and serious readers; those with a vague interest in the general field of leadership and those who want to identify, pursue or hone a particular leadership style. What the editor does not offer is another book of leadership styles for their own sake, nor does he set one style against another but acknowledges an array of leadership styles to grow leaders of sustainable schools in differing circumstances and environments. A clearly structured, essential text for anyone serious about leadership′ - ESCalate `The Essentials of School Leadership contains many of my favourite writers on educational leadership, Brian Caldwell, Brent Davies, Brenda Beatty, Andy Hargreaves, Kenneth Leithwood, Robert Starratt and Linda Lambert. I like to keep fresh by following their thinking, and I wasn′t disappointed, finding writing that is insightful and mostly practical′ - Professor David Loader, Australian College of Educators `The jewels in the book are the opening and closing chapters by Brent and Barbara Davies on "strategic" leadership, any by Andy Hargreaves on "sustainability" leadership. The book is worth buying for those alone, and for Geoff Southworth′s reflective, practical piece on "learning-centred" leadership. This is one for the staffroom library′ - Tim Brighouse, TES Friday Magazine `Educational reform is entering a new phase. In many educational systems there is a move from ′national prescription′, which has produced significant gains in the short term to a focus on ′schools leading reform′. Here the promise is of more sustainable development in the medium term, but this is crucially dependent on the quality of school leadership. In his new book The Essentials of School Leadership, Brent Davies and his collaborators offer us a comprehensive, reflective yet eminently practical review of the approaches to school leadership that underpin the continuing rise in educational standards and the building of professional capacity in our schools′ - David Hopkins, Chief Adviser on School Standards, Department for Education and Skills `At the very time when leadership is recognized as the key to sustainable reform, Brent Davies′ The Essentials of School Leadership is right on the mark.This is a comprehensive, powerful treatment of all core elements of new leadership from the ethical to the political, from the emotional to the entrpreneurial. A must-have compendium for those grappling with the present and future of school leadership′ - Michael Fullan, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, Canada A joint publication with Corwin Press and NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) Press Examining current themes in educational leadership and considering the dimensions of various types of leadership, this book includes contributions from internationally recognised leading authors on the subject. Each chapter introduces the reader to a main theme or facet of leadership with the book as a whole giving an overview of the key ideas in the field. With a clear introduction by Brent Davies, this book provides a core source book as well as a contemporary introduction to the essentials of educational leadership. Written in an accessible style, this book is for school leaders who wish to have a better understanding of their leadership role. It is also suitable for Masters/Doctoral students in the UK, US, Australia and worldwide, and will give those on professional development courses a valuable insight into school leadership.
