In our rapidly changing world of diminishing resources, problem-solving and creative thinking are becoming increasingly important. Educators have a responsibility to forward-think and prepare our young people to face these challenges. In schools, whilst we aim to develop creativity in our students, we do not apply this same philosophy to our leaders.
In this book Francesco Banchini brings together research on both leadership and creativity, questioning to what extent leaders use creativity and how a consideration of creativity can improve our practice within learning communities. Those in educational leadership positions across the world would greatly benefit from reflecting upon the issues raised in this discussion and their own practices. This is a fresh perspective upon a subject which is pertinent to all of us who have responsibility in preparing our young people for the future.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Francesco Banchini's text is a fascinating, comprehensive and useful insight into school leadership. By arguing for more creativity on the part of those running schools, he ushers us away from uninspiring, dated managerial technocratism (unfortunately still dominant) to more collective, sensitive and divergent models. Essential reading for leaders, particularly those working in schools.
