Dialogue is Not Just Talk: A New Ground for Educational Leadership
This is the first and only book that examines dialogue as it pertains to the work of school leaders. The authors of Dialogue Is Not Just Talk develop a theory of dialogic leadership that bridges the gaps between the pioneering philosophical works of such seminal thinkers as Bakhtin, Buber, and Gadamer, as well as the work of educational leaders. Using examples, vignettes, and illustrations, this book develops both a theoretical and a practical approach to educational leadership. Dialogue Is Not Just Talk speaks to leaders striving to develop relationships, improve understanding, overcome conflict, and create an increased sense of community within diverse contexts and pluralistic societies. This book will be useful in academic and practical settings.
