With a focus on the leader as a builder of teams committed to accomplishing the primary mission of the school, Mission Driven Leadership provides the reader with specific, actionable, daily behaviors that build trust and capacity with all stakeholders. High Impact leaders in today’s schools must be more than skilled managers or instructional leaders; they must be interpersonal skill experts committed to building teams and focusing the organization on a common mission. Mission Driven Leadership examines ten (10) specific leadership behaviors that, when implemented with fidelity on a regular basis, will have a profound positive impact on the school culture and climate. These are the leadership attributes that successful 21st century school leaders utilize. -- Provided by publisher."@en ;
