Review quote

"An impressive-sounding title on a business card doesn't necessarily translate into an effective leader. Drs. Johnson and Sessions provide a `how to' for individuals in leadership positions as well as those aspiring to reach these positions. The book is full of powerful reflections that can make lasting impressions for anyone hoping to climb career ladders." ã

--Dan Domenech, Executive Director of The School Superintendents Association (AASA)

"Brad and Julie have written a key book for educational leadership. They have captured the realities of leading through constant change and provide the traits that are found in the strongest leaders. These practitioners' "pearls of wisdom" offer a detailed explanation of the skills needed to be a well-rounded leader."

--G.A. Buie, President of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)
