Description

This book is designed to support the transformation of educators into strategic talent leaders. The author’s research-based "Strategic Talent Leadership Framework" gives leaders the tools for acquiring, accelerating, advancing and assessing educator talent. Each chapter features an illustrative case, best practices, a ready-to-use tool for advancing those practices, a set of "talent analytics," and an action step planner. This guidebook is for principals who seek to assess current performance, adopt research-based strategies for engaging in strategic human capital practices, set goals around the use of those practices, and measure the impact of their work on student outcomes. Accessible and actionable, Strategic Talent Leadership for Educators is not only a guide, but a toolkit for putting research into practice.
