The Elementary Principal’s Personal Coach

Tapping Into Your Power for Extraordinary Leadership

Diana R. Williams,

The Elementary Principal’s Personal Coach: Tapping Into Your Power for Extraordinary Leadership

"There is such authenticity when educators speak from true experiences. I found myself unwilling to put this book down. There are so many ways this book can be used by educators, but probably none more important than by the individual principal seeking support, affirmation, and inspiration."
—Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director
National Staff Development Council

"Williams and Richardson bring to life the abstractions and aspirations of the ISLLC standards through helpful explanations, vivid examples, and compelling stories. Their reflective questions and use of journal writing honor the uniqueness of each reader, and the authors offer practical suggestions for further learning and action."
—Dennis Sparks, President
Thinking Partners
