  • On my bedside table: Professional Books 2013-2014 Recommended reads from friends, colleagues and my recent workshop gurus.
  • My current first read of the new school year, this book is helping me value my role as a “salesman” in today’s consumer driven system. Who aren’t I trying to sell an idea to? Parents, teachers, students... my daughter.There are tools in here to help me.
  • Finding out how to reach all students is the essence of our job.This book was recommended as a brain- based approach which can give us new techniques to consider.
  • Teaching human beings is what we do. Knowing what makes them tick could be the difference between success and failure.
  • Used with rave reviews by a school administrative team to build a culture of positive change at their school, this might be the most important book I read all year.
  • Because I am not a natural protocol user and because you can never have enough of them in your tool-kit.
  • The book behind the inspired (and so funny) TEDtalk: shawn_achor_the_happy_secret_to_better_wor k.html. I can’t wait to find out how to be happier and more productive at the same time.
  • Cautionary tales, fairytales and fables in the workplace.This should be a great read all about what NOT to do when leading a team.
  • A solid, important, serious read for all administrators. It might be first on my list.
  • A colleague suggested this text as a sure-fire way to improve my ability to speak clearly and coherently in front of a group. Something I’ve learned even the best practice.
  • Another whole-leadership team read. This book is said to inspire the group to focus on what is most important for the whole school.
