Getting to the Heart of Leadership: Emotion and Educational Leadership

The book discusses personality and life history, dealing with difficult people and situations, shame and loss, and the future of leadership. All of these are shown through practical examples - primary and secondary case studies as well as through school leaders’ reflections on the influence of their life history on leadership and emotion.
