“In this elegant and powerful book, Spiller and Power have created a comprehensive and memorable framework of eight interlocking areas that make it easy for leaders to focus on what gets results.”

Michael Fullan, professor emeritus, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“The authors acknowledge the myriad challenges leaders face when working to impact student learning. Through real-life examples, protocols, reflection questions, and end-of-chapter planning tools, Spiller and Power show the reader how to focus on simplicity by articulating what is tight. The reader is left with a manageable plan focused on the right work.”

Sarah Schuhl, author and educational consultant

“The authors provide incredible clarity for leaders at all levels, guiding them to focus on the high-impact strategies that create the greatest leverage for school improvement. This is an essential book for anyone leading the PLC process.”

Joe Cuddemi, author and educational consultant

“For leaders who wish to make the leap from PLC lite to the deep levels of implementation . . . , Spiller and Power offer a wealth of practical tools and strategies. . . . They guide PLC leaders in their quest to lead with intention so that their PLCs flourish.”

From the foreword by Douglas Reeves

“Having a chance to work with Karen Power for three years showed me how we must lead with intention, and not just randomly hope it works. This book will give leaders a practical guide for creating lasting change in their school.”

Yvette Scarborough, principal, Fox Elementary, Georgia
