The SLT principles outlined in this book have changed the way I think, plan and act as a leader. Using them has distinctly helped me in successfully creating and leading positive cultural change across a range of schools and colleges. Noel Rawlins, Principal Western Cape College, Queensland, Australia Improving Schools Using Systems Leadership has the potential to become a pivotal compendium within the global literature on Systems Leadership. Concepts and foundations are introduced and applied to schooling and the work of the principal, concluding with the pertinent question, what does this mean for schools? This book is a must read for educators of our future generation of leaders. Dr Paul Lynch, James Cook University, Queensland, Australia
