Quick Overview

Schools tend to focus on improving schools or remaking them anew rather than sustaining what has been created by past leaders. Similarly, leaders rarely think about how the improvements they make will survive their own departure. In this book, the authors examine what we know about making leadership last in schools.


In "Sustainable Leadership", Andy Hargreaves and Dean Fink address one of the most important and often neglected aspects of leadership: sustainability. The authors set out a compelling and original framework of seven principles for sustainable leadership characterized by: depth of learning and real achievement rather than superficially tested performance; length of impact over the long haul, beyond individual leaders, through effectively managed succession; breadth of influence, where leadership becomes a distributed responsibility; justice in ensuring that leadership actions do no harm to and actively benefit students in other schools; diversity that replaces standardization and alignment with diversity and cohesion; resourcefulness that conserves and renews leaders' energy and doesn't burn them out; and conservation that builds on the best of the past to create an even better future.This book is a volume in the "Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education" - a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.
