Using this guide, school leaders will be able to identify, confront and manage difficult people and make an immediate impact to build a collaborative team ready for the school improvement journey. Working With Difficult & Resistant Staff includes helpful scenarios based on real-world experiences of principals and other school leaders. Readers will be able to identify the different kinds of resistant individuals - —underminers, contrarians, on-the-job retirees, resident experts and more— and to confront and manage each type of behaviour so that all staff can thrive in a focused, positive, collaborative environment. The book includes helpful exercises and templates for leaders to use in their planning, and each chapter has reflective leadership questions.
