"Kise reaches an impressive level of clarity as she skillfully guides coaches and educational leaders to grow in self-awareness and create a meaningful set of interpersonal and instructional skills to meet the needs of teachers and students. The fact that everyone is different and deserves respect and understanding for who they are, as they are, is made clear in this edition through powerful images and explanations of current brain research.  Jane challenges and provides specific supports for educators to help us develop interpersonal maturity as we strive to meet the needs of those we serve.
