"Our schools exist for student learners, their learning improvement and well-being: this is our core purpose. How well we achieve this depends significantly on the learning culture we intentionally create for and with the adults who lead, teach and influence these learners.”
“This book provides a wealth of practical ‘how-to’ strategies, protocols, processes and actions to support your leadership work in building strong learning-focused collaborative cultures with your greatest resource for learning impact – people.”
