Based on the popular presentation of the same name, Lead Like the Legends uses the inspiring words of musical legends to help teachers and administrators learn the principles of effective leadership.

The book is organized around 14 musical greats, including Ray Charles, Duke Ellington, Marian Anderson, Carlos Santana, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Louis Armstrong. As you examine the words of wisdom from these artists, you’ll learn the keys to strong leadership, such as…

  • being sincere;
  • accepting no limits;
  • leading with imagination;
  • leading by participating;
  • being daring and high energy;
  • using teamwork; and
  • being yourself.

Each chapter includes motivational stories and examples from school leaders across the country, as well as reflection activities, self-assessments, and planning tools to help you implement the ideas. Whether you’re a teacher looking to enhance your skills or an administrator in charge of managing a school or district, you’ll come away from the book with fresh ideas and inspiration to help you on your journey.
