Praise for the journey of appreciative school leadership: a guide for strengths-based change
This workbook has a lot of great information and guidance for practitioners who want to improve their organizations using AOE principles and frameworks. It is accessible and chock-full of terrific exercises practitioners can use.
It is really helpful to have a set of exercises readily available to put the concepts covered in each chapter into practice right away. This helps to keep the material from ending up as inert, esoteric knowledge separate from the practical knowledge educators use every day.
