Connecting Through Leadership is a true toolkit for anyone facilitating change or leading a system! Dr. Kullar has created a clear and concise ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do’ resource for the essential strands of communication that is research-based, easy to use, and truly relevant to day-to-day life in leadership. The reflection questions and tools for immediate application help the reader process the information and find ways to improve practice immediately. This book will be an invaluable resource for new leaders and a trusted go-to for veterans to ensure we are communicating in the most effective ways possible to keep systems moving forward.”

Heather Friziellie, superintendent, Fox Lake Grade School District 114, Illinois

Connecting Through Leadership is a must-read for leaders who are looking for practical and pragmatic strategies for improving their leadership practice. Too often, books on leadership avoid the hard questions of how to effectively lead and communicate. Dr. Kullar provides a treasure trove of leadership and communication strategies that will help any leader make deeper connections and improve their schools.”
