The Charismatic Leader

The Presentation of Self and the Creation of Educational Settings

Dale L. Brubaker,

The Charismatic Leader: The Presentation of Self and the Creation of Educational Settings

"Future generations of educational leaders will be in debt to Brubaker . . . The book is realistic, clear, and sensitive to the needs of practitioners on the firing line."

Discover the attitudes, behaviors, and skills that will help you become a more dynamic communicator in any situation!

Why do some educators have the ability to inspire while others barely hold the attention of staff, parents, or seminar participants? How should you present ideas to ensure the most success in effecting change? Discover the oft-overlooked but critical civilities of leadership that will give you a distinct edge. Using vignettes and thought-provoking exercises, Brubaker illustrates the rituals, attitudes, and skills successful leaders exhibit, allowing them to make meaningful connections with audiences and foster positive and productive school cultures.

The Charismatic Leader offers sage advice for getting the most out of every interaction, whether a one-on-one conversation, interview, or presentation to a large group. Beginning with the "table manners of leadership," Brubaker pinpoints essential skills that promote the effective exchange of information and better relationships including:

  • Listening carefully to absorb details and discover hidden messages
  • Focusing on the task at hand to choose the most appropriate communication strategy
  • Preparing and rehearsing for flawless personal presentation
  • Team building using techniques that foster collaboration and motivation

Make every interaction count—and build ties that will make a positive and lasting difference in your organization!
