Swimming in the Deep End
Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives
In Swimming in the Deep End: Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives, Jennifer Abrams provides F–12 leaders with the knowledge and resources to achieve true success by diving into the deep end of education – the complex challenges educators face as they work toward improving schools. Abrams encourages leaders to swim fearlessly into the deep end and face challenges head-on by cultivating four foundational skills: (1) thinking before you speak, (2) pre-empting resistance, (3) responding to resistance, and (4) managing yourself through change and resistance. Swimming in the Deep End guides readers in building the skills necessary to lead in teams of educators who successfully implement substantive and systemic change.
