Leading without Being Stung offers practitioners a repertoire of eight, research-supported strategies for affecting teaching performance. In each of the chapters the reader will find: 1) a description of a dimension of supervision and key research that speaks to the key elements of the dimension; 2) an analysis of best practices from school leaders who have shown efficacy in implementing that dimension; 3) an interpretation of how the leader can assess the need for that dimension and plan for implementation; 4) a strategy for making judgments about the level of implementation and the areas for future growth. As such, this book offers BOTH grounded research AND practical strategies for becoming an effective and reflective instructional leader. The key supervision dimensions addressed in this book are: Staff Development, Planning and Change, Communication, Curriculum, Instructional Program, Service to Teachers, Observation and Conferencing, Personal Development.
The first book, Leadership DNA examined the false premise that anyone can be a leader. Paul Okum, a former US Army officer who has held numerous executive positions with the federal government, builds upon those insights in this second book, sharing techniques to identify, select, and help born leaders enhance their skills. He explores how good leaders effectively overcome forty different types of challenges through short essays. Learn how to • avoid one-size-fits-all formulas; • use innate talents to deal with and solve challenges; • embrace the art of leadership over the science of leadership; and • weave a message of hope and confidence that others can embrace. Okum also explains what leadership isn’t—toppling the arguments of leadership gurus who argue that leadership can be managed. The problem with that approach, he says, is that you cannot choreograph a leader’s response to a wide range of human activity and organizational change. You cannot view leadership like a scientific calculation where adherence to formulas equals good leadership. Whether you’re a politician, business executive, or concerned citizen, you’ll be empowered to accomplish objectives with the insights in the second book of Leadership DNA.

From celebrated art historian, curator, and teacher Sarah Lewis, a fascinating examination of how our most iconic creative endeavors—from innovation to the arts—are not achievements but conversions, corrections after failed attempts. The gift of failure is a riddle: it will always be both the void and the start of infinite possibility. The Rise—part investigation into a psychological mystery, part an argument about creativity and art, and part a soulful celebration of the determination and courage of the human spirit—makes the case that many of the world’s greatest achievements have come from understanding the central importance of failure. Written over the course of four years, this exquisite biography of an idea is about the improbable foundations of a creative human endeavor. Each chapter focuses on the inestimable value of often ignored ideas—the power of surrender, how play is essential for innovation, the “near win” can help propel you on the road to mastery, the importance of grit and creative practice. The Rise shares narratives about figures past and present that range from choreographers, writers, painters, inventors, and entrepreneurs; Frederick Douglass, Samuel F.B. Morse, Diane Arbus, and J.K. Rowling, for example, feature alongside choreographer Paul Taylor, Nobel Prize–winning physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, and Arctic explorer Ben Saunders. With valuable lessons for pedagogy and parenting, for innovation and discovery, and for self-direction and creativity, The Rise “gives the old chestnut ‘If at first you don’t succeed…’ a jolt of adrenaline” (Elle).
