I really loved the book. Brumley’s use of research, poetry, and experiences from real principals to examine concepts is exceptional. This should be a best seller!

The most important thing about servant leadership is putting it into practice. Dr. Brumley offers school principals a comprehensive guide to doing exactly that. This translation of servant leadership into daily practices will make school principals more effective in serving students and school communities.

[It] encompasses every element necessary for school principals to be successful as servant leaders in an ever-changing society. This book fulfills a long-awaited demand for progressive principals in a very real world, challenged with monumental expectations to meet multiple needs within their learning communities.

The roles, responsibilities, and expectations of today's school leaders have changed. As a result, the type of leadership needed has also evolved. In order to successfully effect change in today's schools, a leader must not see the position as a job but as more of a calling. This book is a must-read for those who believe they have what it takes to accept the challenge of educational leadership.
