Despite the growing popularity of teacher collaboration in teams such as PLCs, most teachers were never trained in the basic skills of team facilitation such as establishing and enforcing norms, setting goals, and moving beyond the "culture of nice." Whether team leadership is a shared responsibility or an individual responsibility, knowledge of effective leadership practice is an essential requirement for team success. This book provides a research-based understanding of common roadblocks that school-based team leaders encounter, and practical strategies to overcome them, and even avoid them. The author helps readers look beyond the surface to see complex challenges as windows into the existing school culture; giving them strategies to not only lead their teams, but also, offering readers concrete ways in which they can influence and grow the school culture.
