The premise of The Unlearning Leader is that we all need to unlearn in order to relearn. The authors submit that school leaders must unlearn their current approaches to leadership in how they connect, lead, support student learning, transform schools, and impact organizational cultures. The contents include chapters on unlearning connections, unlearning planning and change process, unlearning “That’s the way we’ve always done it,” unlearning fear of social media, unlearning professional development, and unlearning leadership.
