about

Breaking Away from the Corporate Model integrates the core values of servant leadership into an effective formula for organizational health and school transformation. Providing strategies for transformation, Rocky Wallace follows a high school principal, John, as he extends his servant leadership model to a regional cohort of principals. The rich discussions and networking that result provides critical support for these school shepherds as they learn to more effectively serve their school communities. This book emphasizes the need to understand how the corporate mentality and impersonal business of school can easily get in the way of the heart of teaching and learning.
Rocky Wallace has served as the principal of a U.S. Blue Ribbon School, leadership consultant to principals for the Kentucky Department of Education, and currently teaches instructional leadership classes for Morehead State University.
