This groundbreaking volume encourages today’s educational leaders to reposition the way they think about leadership and its challenges. Experienced school and district leaders reveal how they conceptualize their roles; how they learn by posing and solving problems of practice; and how they cope with increasing expectations and complexity in their work.

The conference, "Reimagining Independent Schools; Tearing Down Wall, Building Capacity, and Designing our Future," was held February 27-March 1, 2019 in Long Beach, California.

The conference, “Effective Leadership Creates Success," was held February 14-16, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. Mid-Career alumni Carol Kelley, Randy Ziegenfuss, and Bolgen Vargas were selected to present in the Focus Zone-Administration and Leadership with Repositioning Educational Leadership: Inquiry-Based Approaches to District Leadership.
