Five Disciplines of PLC Leaders

Outstanding leadership in a professional learning community requires practice and patience. Simply trying harder will not yield results; leaders must proactively train to get better at the skills that matter. This book offers a framework to focus time, energy, and effort on five key disciplines. Included are reflection exercises to help readers find their own path toward effective PLC leadership.


  • Help other educators clarify their personal vision for the PLC and align daily practices with their goals.
  • Explore strategies for cultivating individual and team-level autonomy within a culture of accountability and high expectations.
  • Learn how to create a culture of service that begins with the leader.
  • Understand how to lead a balanced work life that energizes yourself and others.
