Leadership Bloopers and Blunders is a common-sense book on what not to do as a leader. The book is divided into six distinct chapters that help to identify common leadership mistakes that can lead to disaster for teachers and school leaders. This book shares real-life stories based on actual events. Some stories are based on court cases or events that made the news, while others were compiled from events shared by colleagues. Each story is followed by discussion questions to facilitate discussion to enhance leadership development. The chapters highlight legal and good-sense commentary on how to avoid leadership mishaps from those who have seen it all.
