A Leadership Guide for Women in Higher Education
Title: A Leadership Guide for Women in Higher Education

Author: Marjorie Hass

For years, Marjorie Hass, now the president of Rhodes College, was approached by women in higher education looking for advice and support as they took on leadership roles and navigated challenging career paths. Eventually, she began offering online seminars so she could meet in small groups to answer questions and encourage women to develop mutually supportive relationships. In A Leadership Guide for Women in Higher Education, Hass draws on her sixteen years of senior leadership experience, her work with national higher education organizations, and her mentorship work with dozens of women to address fundamental issues women face when they lead in higher education.

Aiming to level the playing field by giving women the insightful, supportive advice they need to advance in their careers and to lead with excellence, Hass combines practical information with career coaching. In this frank guide to launching, building, and advancing your academic career, Hass addresses a wide range of topics, including:

* deciding whether academic leadership is for you
* developing a personal leadership style
* becoming comfortable with power, ambition, and personal voice
* navigating patriarchal assumptions
* finding joy in leadership work
* gaining experience with budget management, revenue generation, personnel management, and fundraising-no matter your current job title
* effectively managing conflict
* aligning personal and career values and goals
* winning your next job
and much more

Women at any stage of their academic leadership career will find this guide insightful, useful, and empowering, as will anyone interested in supporting women leaders and diversifying leadership in higher education.

Transforming School Culture
Title: Transforming School Culture (2nd Edition): How to Overcome Staff Division

Author: Anthony Muhammad

Leading the Four Types of Teachers and Creating a Positive School Culture

Transforming School Culture provides a school improvement plan for leaders to overcome staff division, improve relationships, and build positive school cultures.

Dr. Anthony Muhammad contends that in order to transform school culture, we must understand why teachers continue to hold on to models or beliefs contrary to those put forth by their school or district. He explores the human behavior, social conditions, and history that cause the underlying conflict among the four different types of teachers in a school.

The second edition of this best-selling resource delivers powerful new insight into the four types of educators—Believers, Fundamentalists, Tweeners, and Survivors—and how school leaders can work with each group to create positive school culture.

* Study the author’s research and observations of 34 schools—11 elementary schools, 14 middle schools, and 9 high schools—and how each school’s staff supported or hindered student achievement.
* Consider the characteristics of positive school cultures and how your school’s culture and climate may differ.
* Learn how laws such as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB) impact teachers and school culture.

Women and Leadership
Title: Women and Leadership: Real lives, real lessons

Authors: Julia Gillard & Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

An inspirational and practical book written by two high-achieving women, sharing the experience and advice of some of our most extraordinary women leaders, in their own words.

As a result of their broad experience on the world stage in politics, economics and global not-for-profits, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Julia Gillard have some strong ideas about the impact of gender on the treatment of leaders. Women and Leadership takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women who lead.

Almost every year new findings are published about the way people see women leaders compared with their male counterparts. The authors have taken that academic work and tested it in the real world. The same set of interview questions were put to each leader in frank face-to-face interviews. Their responses were then used to examine each woman's journey in leadership and whether their lived experiences were in line with or different from what the research would predict.

Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of the influence of gender on women's access to positions of leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. By presenting the lessons that can be learned from women leaders, Julia and Ngozi provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire us all, and an action agenda for change that allows women to take control and combat gender bias.

Featuring Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.
