Hong Kong, January 23, 2020 /Xinwengao.com/ - Too often middle leaders in educational organizations are stuck in an imaginary zone that feels like Middle Earth. In Michael Iannini’s new bestselling book “Hidden In Plain Sight: Realizing The Full Potential Of Middle Leaders”, he breaks open the doors for middle leaders to succeed by achieving a shared purpose that will improve student learning by raising the standard of teaching across the school.
“Working interdependently doesn’t happen because we label a team a learning community or administratively mandate professional learning with fixed schedules and objectives,” says Michael. “Getting teams to work interdependently requires empowered middle leaders. This book will help senior leaders empower middle leaders to take ownership of school change initiatives, by: understanding how to select middle leaders, differentiating expectations for middle leaders, and identifying the skills and knowledge middle leaders need to lead change. Middle leaders will learn how to advocate for themselves and their team, by understanding how their role changes as the team develops, establishing a clear purpose and goals, and harnessing conflict to innovate.”
“Hidden In Plain Sight” is a valuable learning tool for every educator. With a foreword written by ACAMIS’s Executive Director Tom Ulmet, this is a book that can improve middle leadership in any school.
