Mentoring has been effective for teachers helping teachers and students helping students. John C. Daresh, educational leadership expert, brings this successful process to educational administrators in his recently updated Leaders Helping Leaders, Second Edition. In his highly acclaimed book, he offers a practical and up-to-date plan to pair experienced administrators with new and struggling colleagues to support continuity of leadership and create effective education.

In addition to the three-phase model of planning, implementing, and assessing, this updated edition includes:

  • Special focus on promoting more diverse and multicultural schools
  • Updated scenarios responding to critical concerns for today's school administrators

In Leaders Helping Leaders, Second Edition Daresh details how to plan, implement, and incorporate a structured mentoring program into any school setting. A sample mentoring background quiz, real-life scenarios, a mentor-protégé action planning form, and details of training aids available for school system planners are just a few of the concrete aids this book offers to create a dynamic leadership mentoring program.

This is an essential resource guide for every school or school district that wants to maintain administrative continuity and improve education.
