Review quote

"BRAVO Principal! is a refreshing look at the personal side of leading. Harris demonstrates that who you are is as important as what you do. This book provides an opportunity for practicing and aspiring school leaders to focus on understanding and developing the personal skills so critical for success." --Richard A. Flanary, President, Flanary Educational Consulting, LLC, and Former Deputy Executive Director, NASSP "This book is a must-read for all school leaders. Harris hits on important concepts that help emerging leaders become good, and good leaders become great. With practical examples and exercises for putting concepts into practice, the book is a meaningful tool that ultimately benefits principals, teachers, and students. Truly impactful!" --Stacey Edmonson, Dean, College of Education, Sam Houston State University "Rarely do principals have an opportunity to 'practice' their skills. Now, finally, Harris has crafted and created a 'leadership practice field' for principals with the Review, Reflect, and Remember activities accompanying each chapter. This makes BRAVO Principal! not only a good read, but also a principal user's guide and instructional manual to be used often and regularly." --Theodore Creighton, Retired Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Virginia Tech, and Director, NCPEA Pressshow more
