Reviews

"Many conversations that I hear from administrators focus on how to deal with educators, yet often don't focus on reflecting what they can do different. The authors do a beautiful job of helping leaders focus inward, instead of outward. This book by Joe and Tony, grounded in the importance of empowered relationships with the entire school community, provides some amazing ideas on how to develop learner-centred schools (learners meaning students and educators) in ways that could be implemented immediately. This is an essential read for leaders who are, or want to lead, learner-centred schools." - George Couros Author of "The Innovator's Mindset," and Innovative Leadership and Learning Consultant "As the Director of Innovation for Future Ready Schools, I've had the opportunity to work closely with over 3,000 school administrators and over 500 school districts over the past year. Across the United States, I've witnessed firsthand how school leaders are searching tirelessly to find innovative ways to create schools that better work for kids. Grounded in research and evident in today's most successful schools, school leadership and culture lay the groundwork for systemic transformation. In Hacking Leadership, Sanfelippo and Sinanis, two highly successful practitioners, provide a blueprint for school leaders to build strong relationships, shift mindsets, and create dynamic school cultures with opportunities for all. Unlike many education books written today, Hacking Leadership, provides concrete steps to remove traditional roadblocks and shift the mindset of naysayers, both short and long term. If you're a school leader working to create a future ready school, you will find this book to be one of your best resources in your journey moving forward." - Thomas C.
