Description

In Time for Change: Four Essential Skills for Transformational School and District Leaders, Anthony Muhammad and Luis F. Cruz describe effective organisational change as having two dimensions: the technical and the cultural. In order to efficiently create change in both of these dimensions, leaders should have a comprehensive and balanced set of leadership skills. To this end, the authors explore four skills essential to the transformational leader that combine to form the authors’ Why? Who? How? Do! model.



  1. Communicating the rationale to build cognitive investment

  2. Establishing trust to make an emotional investment

  3. Building capacity to make functional investment

  4. Getting results to collect the return on investment
