"Principal voice? Some people think principals have all of the power and too loud of a voice, when the reality is often much different than that. Principals are typically caught between central office initiatives and teacher, parent and student needs. Too often they feel the need to be reactive instead of proactive. In his new book Principal Voice, Russ Quaglia offers important insights based in research and practical tips on how principals can find their own voice, foster the voices of others and be more proactive."

-- Peter DeWitt, Author and Consultant

"Pragmatic, poignant, and positively student-centered... Principal Voice packs a punch! Quaglia succinctly outlines how to lead with greater impact and influence by incorporating the sage advice of his grandmother along with a plethora of supporting ideas from principals around the world. I dare any principal to try and read this book only one time!"

-- Brad Gustafson, Elementary Principal and Author of Renegade Leadership

"Dr. Quaglia calls upon principals to prioritize listening as the core strategy toward building authentic engagement among students, staff, parents, and community members, thereby transforming schools into vibrant communities where all voices are heard, valued and empowered. Dr. Quaglia's personal and inspiring words are an uplifting and timely message for all principals: let every voice-including the principal's-be in the lead!"

-- Sandra A. Trach, Principal

"It's exciting to see Russ Quaglia use his work on Student Voice to help principals and other leaders find their voice by being good listeners first. This is an excellent read for all leaders in education."

-- Chris Minnich, Executive Director

"Russell Quaglia has hit it out of the ballpark with his excellent and inspiring read, Principal Voice: Listen, Learn, Lead. This short but essential book is a must-read for every practicing and/or prospective school leader. The author provides real and relevant advice -- reminding readers to listen to improve the message and thus lead by creating a caring, collaborative, and enthusiastic learning community. Read this book so your voice can be effectively and readily heard as a means of becoming an instrument of critical change!"

-- Dr. Richard Sorenson, Professor Emeritus

"Listen, learn and lead sounds simple, but Quaglia's wisdom is rich and his authentic voice guides principals through the model. This book should be used as the Voice Model for any principal who wishes to influence their states' plans for Every Student Succeeds Act. A must read for every principal!"

-- Joan E. Auchter, Director of Professional Development

"Perhaps the greatest challenge for an educational practitioner is to provide advice-in writing-to other practitioners. Such collegial advice must pass the 'Goldilocks Principle' of being neither too theoretical nor too simplistic. Happily, Dr. Russ Quaglia has come up with a 'just right,' genuinely insightful contribution to instructional leadership. Although research-based, his suggestions as to why school principals should employ his Voice Model to better utilize her or his voice in a way that builds relationships, trust, and momentum within the school at the same time involving students, teachers, parents, and community mem bers is persuasively slathered in practicality. A terrific, must read!"

-- Dr. Raymond L. Smith, Author of Evaluating Instructional Leadership
"Principal Voice is one of the most important resources for educational leaders in a disrupted world. It's concise, direct, and full of actionable ideas for all leaders to implement immediately. If you are committed to influencing change, then Principal Voice is the roadmap to making a tremendous difference in the lives of students."
-- Simon T. Bailey, Author of Releasing Leadership Brilliance

"With a perfect blend of wit and wisdom, Russ Quaglia expands upon his compelling research related to student and teacher voice to reveal the value and importance of principal voice in leading and supporting growth schoolwide. Alternately encouraging and challenging, Quaglia beseeches principals to listen carefully to student and teacher voice in finding and leveraging their own voice to influence policy and practice. Principal Voice is a must read for principals and anyone who is involved with educating our nation's children-it provides a blueprint for utilizing 'voice' in leading through collaboration to achieve better results for students."

-- Gail Connelly, Executive Director
