Good for a leader to read. It wasn t as relevant to me right now as I expected it to be, but I ll re read this next time I m new to a school. Insightful, full of interesting reflection on the nature of trust and the role it plays in developing and sustaining successful schools. I may have jumped the gun a bit in reading this book, but I got so excited about working in school leadership that I couldn t help it The reason I m not giving itthan three stars is that I think it will become muchhelpful to me when I am a practitioner than it is at the moment At any rate, it provided a good mix of insights that I relate to from my own socioprofessional experiences and ones that seem new and useful to me. The names were changed to protect the guilty in this book, but the stories did not convince me that this was the only interpretation that I could have reached after hearing the evidence I KNOW that trust does matter, but this book did very little to influence my actions, experience, or opinions on this important topic. Read for a district leadership cohort Good insight into the importance of trust in order to make change I liked the three characters that were woven in as examples I found myself saying I know a Gloria , etc I recommend to all leaders trying to implement change or improve culture climate. This is a book that every administrator, including superintendents, district administrators, and school site administrators should read if dealing with toxic school cultures Bottom line, trust is earned and it must start from the top. Repetitive and primarily for principals, although some ideas apply to anyone Not especially thought provoking.
