Editorial Reviews

School leaders will love this book. Through extensive research, brought to life with vivid and inspiring real-world examples, the authors prove that crafting a high-achieving environment is no game of chance. They present a compelling twelve-step program guaranteed to transform a lackluster culture into a resilient, high-achieving organization. This is a book that I will read and re-read long after other leadership texts have been stored away, simply because the principles presented here are practical, timeless, and proven.
