Total Leaders 2.0 is the twenty-first-century's quick guide to leadership and successful change. It places the best thinking of several dozen, cutting-edge leadership and change gurus of the past two decades into an integrated, compelling, easily understood, and practical leadership framework: the Total Leader 2.0 Model.

This new edition of the widely read Total Leaders book: 1) significantly deepens the theoretical grounding and applicability of the original Total Leader Model, and 2) expands its connection to other significant dimensions of leadership, professionalism, personal empowerment, learning, life, and change.

Editorial Reviews

AASA veterans will, no doubt, remember Chuck Schwahn and Bill Spady from the outcome-based education wars of the mid-1990's. Total Leaders 2.0: Leading in the Age of Empowerment is a 10-years-after-NCLB update of their Total Leaders book of 1998..The details are in the work of daily leadership, and the authors lay out the model's five domains and 15 performance roles. While there is not a lot here that an experienced superintendent has not heard before, bringing these ideas together into one framework is helpful, both in implementing key actions in a district and in conceptualizing them in leadership development classes.
