Leadership Reads

Leadership Reads represent a collection of seminal readings related to various aspects of educational leadership and are strategically selected for impact on perspective, application, and practice. The list of Leadership Reads for each cohort are typically 12-15 books and each read is connected to a specific course, but is to be read independently. The connection of each book to the themes of change, decision-making, perspective, leadership, resources, systems, ethics, relationships, growth, and faith allow for a thorough understanding of different and often clashing paradigms and opinions.
