Leading Holistically explores systems thinking in educational leadership-a comprehensive framework that enables leaders to improve their practice by taking a holistic perspective, instead of relying on a one-size-fits-all solution to discrete aspects of their organization. Aiming to expand the existing literature on systems thinking in educational leadership and policy, renowned educational leadership scholars come together in this valuable book to examine systems thinking at the school, district, and state/national levels, providing strategies to guide educators toward success. This important book unpacks the complexity and nuances of systems thinking in educational leadership and policy, helping educators face the growing complexity, change, and diversity in education to realize the promise of improvement for all those connected to and involved in the important endeavor of education.

"Leading Holistically is a one of a kind book. It provides a set of examples of what leading systemically looks like across the three levels of systems. It gives us 'applied system thinking in action'. It sets as new standard for systems theory. Above all it invites new applied scholarship using the power of systems thinking to understand and take actions that affect whole systems for the better. It presents a new and powerful friend into the neighborhood. It makes system thinking that much more accessible."
-From the Foreword by Michael Fullan, Global Leadership Director, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning





"It is high time that a book that presents research on systems theory to practice be published. We have books and articles that focus on practice at various levels of the larger educational system but there is no definitive book where the theory is used to guide and present research across the three levels of the education system-school, district, state/national. This book fills this gap."
- George White, Iacocca Professor of Education, Lehigh University

Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
