Resilient School Leaders answers a fundamental question: "How can leaders move ahead in the face of adversity?" Education leaders often face difficult situations and seemingly impossible odds. Where do they find the confidence and energy to keep working for what they believe in, despite setbacks and opposition? Drawing on current research in a variety of disciplines, including performance psychology, physiology, and education, Jerry L. Patterson and Paul Kelleher first outline the three sources of resilience capacity: personal values, efficacy, and energy. Then they share the personal insights of 25 highly regarded educational leaders, including Gene Carter, Roland Barth, and Michael Fullan. These insights illustrate how leaders can increase their own resilience. Patterson and Kelleher, lifelong educators themselves, distill their research into the six strengths that enable resilient leaders to powerfully influence organizational culture:?Accurate assessment of the past and current reality?Positive views of the future?True commitment to personal values?Strong sense of personal efficacy?Wise investment of personal energy?Courage to act on convictionsPremised on a belief in hope and optimism in the face of life's storms, Resilient School Leaders offers a reliable road map for navigating through the modern-day challenges in our schools.
