The School Leader's Guide to Understanding Attitude and Influencing Behavior free pdf School leaders constantly face situations where they must understand the values, attitudes, and beliefs that a person or group brings to a given situation. Often these attitudes are based on faulty information or misguided beliefs, and, if left unchecked, can have serious consequences.

By using this model, school leaders can make more effective, data-driven decisions. Some examples of how model can be applied to education include: - Teachers integrating technology in the classroom - Parents monitoring their children's homework - Formulating school policy - Teacher retention Educational leaders at LEA and school level, including advisors and SMT members will find this a invaluable tool for decision making and working with other school staff.Governors and other community members will find the information useful as well. In addition, this book is suitable for postgraduate students of educational leadership.
