Book Title: The Technology Director's Guide to Leadership: The Power of Great Questions
Publisher: International Society for Technology in Education
Author: Don Hall
Many technology coordinators and directors are initially tapped for the role because of their expertise in technology or instruction. However, they seldom receive training in how to be leaders and agents of change at the organizational level. Yet technology coordinators are increasingly being called upon to assume this mantle of leadership. Every organization and situation is different, and there are no 'silver bullets' or one-size-fits-all lists of rules, but knowing the right questions to ask can mean the difference between effective leadership and frustration. The Technology Director's Guide to Leadership demonstrates the power of these great questions.
Using a character-driven storyline, Don Hall introduces the three leadership archetypes and helps you identify your own style of leadership. Each chapter also contains practical activities and exercises designed to assist you as you provide leadership in your organization. Hall explores how to more effectively facilitate communication between you and your team. Strategies are included to help you manage the performance of different personality types in order to bring out excellence in everyone.'
