Coaching Leadership is about building leadership capacity in individuals, and in institutions, through enhancing professional relationships.

It is based on the importance of maximising potential, and harnessing the ongoing commitment and energy needed to meet personal and professional goals. Coaching Leadership is for school leaders wanting to reflect on their own leadership, those working in professional development, and teachers thinking about how they can more effectively facilitate learning.

Since the first edition was published in 2005, the isolation felt by education leaders has not diminished. Leaders need access to collegial collaboration and shared problem solving if they are to tackle the important educational issues and grow as reflective leaders of learning. This book provides the evidence, principles and skills needed to develop leadership skills for individuals and across institutions.
