Abstract

The book contains examples of how school leaders experience emotion and meaning in their daily interactions. Through stories, the reader can experience how school climate depends on the personal emotional quality of the leader, and his/her interface with other social relationships in the school. The book discusses personality and life history, dealing with difficult people and situations, shame and loss, and the future of leadership. All of these are shown through practical examples - primary and secondary case studies as well as through school leaders’ reflections on the influence of their life history on leadership and emotion.
