School Leadership: A Reality Check – is a guide to successfully managing a leadership role in the eduation system. This book is born out of research investigating what constitutes failures of leadership through a qualitative study of school leaders and quantitative analysis. Pam Ryan has crafted a reassuring and practical method, providing accurate guidance and elaborating on the dimensions of leadership for everyone contemplating an educational leadership role – or already in one. Ultimately, it helps readers reach their own conculsions about what it means to understand and exercise leadership.

People Stuff – Beyond Personality Problems: An Advanced Handbook for Leadership – Do people drive you nuts? Are silos and turf wars challenging the culture? Wondering if it ever gets any easier? The toughest – and best – part of leadership is the people. But let’s face it, people dynamics can be tricky. Solutions are within. People Stuff is your map to the complex territory of human behaviour and leadership strategies. People Stuff goes well beyond frustrating ‘personality clashes’ to uncover the dynamics of human interactions at work. You’ll clarify how you see yourself, your people and your organisation to avoid ineffective superficial solutions to complex problems. People Stuff offers intuitive maps and frameworks to develop your practice of perspective. You’ll be able to see more and lead better. By using a combination of the five key leadership archetypes – the Elder, Pioneer, Guardian, Warrior, and Diplomat – you’ll be able to meet the current business challenges with the right approach for maximum influence. Personalities aren’t the problem, systems are. When the Four Devils appear in the workplace, it’s tempting to give up on them as character flaws. With the Four Devils map, you’ll be able to pinpoint the symptoms and causes of the toughest people challenges, and implement effective long-term solutions. If you’re a leader who’s called to make an impact, then People Stuff will give you the perspective tools to see issues before they escalate. You’ll also be able to anticipate positive ripples so you can truly lead with compassion and wisdom.
