This book addresses the very real challenges of leading and managing a range of colleagues with a particular focus on those who are not performing as well as they might. It is a unique collection of headteachers' voices as they reflect on the many complex dilemmas they face in coping with teachers' personal and professional lives, aging colleagues, accountability and government directives. It provides significant insights into the complexities of being a leader in the very challenging environment of education in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive world. An appendix includes a 'warts and all' discussion of the research strategy and the ethical issues surrounding the study which will be an invaluable resource for researchers including MA and doctoral students.
