'Dr Crawford's book fills a valuable gap in the leadership and management narrative. Focusing on the individual leader, and how past experiences and contexts shape and form current practices, it offers invaluable insights and personal reflection on our own learning journeys.' -- Peter Barnes 'This book is refreshing and distinctive. It takes the individual as the starting-point and builds outwards from there, to the vital but often neglected interpersonal dimension and the turbulent contexts of modern education. Vignettes help to make the theory concrete and activities bring the reader right into the frame' -- Ron Glatter
