Additional Book Details

The busy administrator’s guide to creating strong teams, changing culture, and improving performance

How effective is your team? Research shows that "teacher collective efficacy"—when all teachers are collectively engaged and focused on improvement—can do more to increase student learning than any other strategy. In fact, using powerhouse teams can achieve four years of student growth in a single calendar year. Horton’s practical guide will help you form your own dream team through:

Short activities that require little to no preparation that you can use to deepen conversation at your very next meeting Step-by-step tools that will help your team move from identifying its biggest challenges to choosing and implementing successful reforms Strategies to enhance teamwork, trust, and collaboration so that your team becomes as effective as possible

Horton will help you connect people, build trust, discover strengths, and clear barriers to reach greater teacher and program effectiveness—and ultimately raise student achievement.

This book provides leaders and teams with a blueprint of how to work through a problem to find possible solutions while valuing each member of the team. This is not an easy task at any level and to have a resource to provide guidance for those tough situations is always welcomed.
Nicky Kemp, Assistant Superintendent
North Callaway R-1 School District

Leading School Teams allowed our team to address the lack of processes and the finger pointing and tension that went along with it. It was surprising how quickly the activities and discussion brought out the meat of the issues within our team.  Because of the natural manner in which the issues were approached, team members felt respected and accomplished after each session.
