However, as scholars and practitioners note, the ways that university courses can cultivate specific leadership practices to support leadership growth and help leaders support adult growth within schools remain un- clear and in urgent need of investigation (Donaldson, 2008;Leithwood & Beatty, 2007;Lieberman & Miller, 2001;Lugg & Shoho, 2006;Mizell, 2007).

How Leaders Learn portrays the developmental experiences of educators seeking to become accomplished leaders in their schools. The author presents a new model of leadership knowledge: the Interpersonal-Cognitive-Intrapersonal (I-C-I) model. Through the stories of teacher leaders and administrators in several leadership development programs, the book depicts the evolution of understanding, skill, and self-confidence. These learners grapple with questions essential to all effective leadership: Does my leadership generate improved learning for the students in my school? What are my greatest assets as a leader? What are my greatest liabilities, and what do I do about them? Can I find a leadership role that is both productive and sustainable for me and for the school I serve?

This dynamic professional development tool:

Introduces a framework for thinking about how school leaders cultivate and support their own learning. Richly describes in leaders’ own words the deepening of interpersonal, cognitive, and intrapersonal leadership knowledge and action. Describes how to structure the Performance Learning cycle to support leadership that benefits students. Links recent literature and research to support new insights into the role of emotion, self-awareness, and interpersonal skills in leader learning.

Gordon Donaldson "How leaders learn".

There is surprisingly little written, or known, about how school leaders learn. One suspects that situated learning (Lave & Wenger, 1996) is the norm because most school leaders hold a variety of formal and informal school leadership positions before attaining principalship. The problem for every school leader and educational system is ensuring that school leaders keep learning, and simply don't exist by living off the knowledge and skills laid down during their "apprenticeships".

Professional development (that done to school leaders) and professional learning (that initiated by school leaders) has generally been cognitive in nature. Secondly, many school leaders are thrown in at the deep-end, and the skills of survival mark the high points of their intuitive learning. Gordon Donaldson's book represents a massive leap forwarding in the thinking about leaders' learning. Donaldson, after years of working with school leaders, recognised three domains of leaders' learning, interpersonal, cognitive and intrapersonal (ICI). The three domains are intertwined in every aspirant's Leadership Development Plan (LDP), and together they demonstrate the shortcomings of concentrating on only one domain.

A strong point of Donaldson's approach is that school leaders' learning becomes a sharing-social experience, in a Vygotskian tradition. The claims about the loneliness of leadership then become less of a leadership disincentive.

The strategies used in the Maine Academy for School Leaders/ University of Maine programs are well thought out and their combination through ICI, is their strength. The supporting documents included in the book are extremely useful.

This book is a good read in its own right, and Foreword by the delightful writer Roland Barth is an added bonus.

Our school leaders' professional reading group has chosen this book as our reader for this term, and it will be certain to generate debate and learning.
