Publisher's Summary

LISTENING...THE KEY TO BECOMING A TRANSFORMATIVE SCHOOL LEADER  

The Listening Leader is a practical guide that will inspire school, district, and teacher leaders to make substantive change and increase equitable student outcomes. Rooted in the values of equity, relationships, and listening, this luminous book helps reimagine what is possible in education today. Drawing from more than 20 years of experience in public schools, Shane Safir incorporates hands-on strategies and powerful stories to show us how to leverage one of the most vital tools of leadership: listening. As a Listening Leader, you'll feel more confident in these core competencies:  

  • Cultivating relationships with stakeholders  
  • Addressing equity challenges in your organization  
  • Gathering student, staff, and parent perspectives as rich data on improvement  
  • Fostering a thriving culture of collaboration and innovation  

The Listening Leader offers a much-needed leadership model to transform every facet of school life, and most importantly, to shape our schools into equitable places of learning. As Michael Fullan writes in the Foreword, "Read it, act on it, and reap the benefits for all."

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not read by the author

Great book. Audible graphic says its read by the author. It is not. Again, wonderful book - but false that it’s read by the author.
