Uplifting Leadership. How organisations, teams and communities raise performance.

A readable book on leadership written by well respected education scholars for education leaders.  The authors have taken lessons from various organisational fields, sport, education and business.  Synthesising the the elements that make the organisations successful they have come up with a number of elements that will cause uplifting leadership.

The quote below is from the chapter on measuring with meaning which does a good job summersing the thiking in this chapter.

uplifting leaders attend to the human side as well as the technical side of change... There is no algorithm for expertise, wisdom does not manifest itself on a spreadsheet. What ultimately matters the most is how metrics are used to improve human judgement and human experience.
