About the Author

Jan Robertson is Head of Department, London Centre for Leadership in Learning, Institute of Education.


'Overall Coaching Educational Leadership is a unique and impressive book that employs a critical approach and an opportunity for not only educational leaders but practitioners to utilise coaching to improve the quality of their professional life through effective communication skills...I do recommend the book as it not only introduces the coaching phenomenon, but also provides a precept of theory informing practice and practice informing theory' -

'In her quietly radical book...Jan Robertson offers a structured and supported process for school leaders to work collaboratively towards their self-defined professional goals, and through this to support their own professional growth and that of their organisation...Since it builds on the experience of school leaders and has been widely trialled, readers can have confidence that it works' - International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring '[T]his book is distinctive, engaging, fills a gap in accessing this knowledge base, and makes a valuable contribution to the field of leadership coaching. The book will be of interest to professionals in education, social services, law, and for those facilitating professional development that respects professional knowledge. I shall recommend this book to colleagues pursuing postgraduate research programmes I lead and teach' - Educational Management, Administration and Leadership 'Jan Robertson's splendid book not only advocates articulately for the necessity of leadership coaching, but sets out practically what good coaching can, and should, look like' - Andy Hargreaves, Boston College 'If we are serious about improving schools then we need to look at building leadership capability and capacity. This book provides a powerful and insightful starting point' - Alma Harris, University of Warwick 'This is a real contribution to the literature and professional development of educational leaders' - Bruce Barnett, Universtity of Texas at San Antonio
