LISTENING . . . THE KEY TO BECOMING A TRANSFORMATIVE SCHOOL LEADER

The Listening Leaderis a practical guide that will inspire school, district, and teacher leaders to make substantive change and increase equitable student outcomes. Rooted in the values of equity, relationships, and listening, this luminous book helps reimagine what is possible in education today. Drawing from more than twenty years of experience in public schools, Shane Safir incorporates hands-on strategies and powerful stories to show us how to leverage one of the most vital tools of leadership:listening. As a Listening Leader you'll feel more confident in these core competencies:

  • Cultivating relationships with stakeholders
  • Addressing equity challenges in your organization
  • Gathering student, staff, and parent perspectives as rich data on improvement
  • Fostering a thriving culture of collaboration and innovation

The Listening Leaderoffers a much-needed leadership model to transform every facet of school life, and most importantly, to shape our schools into equitable places of learning. As Michael Fullan writes in the Foreword, "Read it, act on it, and reap the benefits for all."

"This book is a 'must have' for any leader trying to move the needle on equity. Drawing from her lived experience as a principal and leadership coach, Safir offers stories that give insight and practical strategies that get results. It's one you'll keep coming back to."
—Zaretta Hammond,author ofCulturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain

"The Listening Leaderimmediately changed the way I interact with students, teachers, families and community members."
—Tamara Friedman,assistant principal, Berkeley High School

"Shane Safir has written a brilliant book. As engaging as it is informative and as revelatory as it is relevant. It is a must-read for school leaders and those who aspire to lead."
—Chris Emdin,associate professor of science education, Teachers College, Columbia University; author ofFor White Folks Who Teach In the Hood and the Rest of Ya'll too
