About

At some stage in your teaching career, a well-meaning colleague has probably thrust a book at you and said, “You should read this”. This website is designed to help you wade through the piles of literature on education, leadership and change management and find something that will help you on your leadership journey. Many of the titles are not strictly educational, instead coming from the business or journalistic world. All are relevant to educational contexts, leadership development and change management.

I decided to create you should read this, in order to help leaders in schools quickly find reading that would help them with worthwhile reading for their own leadership journey.

I myself am an avid reader of non fiction, business, leadership and management books and have used professional reading to help build my leadership skills.

I work in a large Victorian Government secondary college in Melbourne as a Campus Principal. I have previously been a classroom teacher and leading teacher for over 10 years.

I hope you find this resource helpful as you develop your leadership.

    I have written on many things in education, look at them and maybe add them to your list if you can use them. Sincerely, Barry
