Managing people is a key aspect of leading and the exercise of leadership skills. Institutions are complex organizations of structures and cultures reflecting the values of those who lead and work in them. Managing People in Education is about those people. It deals with the 'art' of leadership and leading, with teams and collaborative ways of working and with the operational systems which form part of the daily practice of management in organizations. Managing people is not the same as managing any other resource. Managing people involves recognizing and dealing with the range of human nature, life choices, feelings and emotions. Leading and Managing People in Education also considers the affective dimension of leadership and the exercise of management skills. It provides an opportunity for critical reflection on a range of literature, which forms a framework for self-examination and institutional critique. The editors believe that the practice of leadership is fragmented and that leadership is not just for leaders but also for anyone working in an organization. The main themes covered are: - learning to be leaders - dispersed leadership - managing people and teams in organisation structures - the experience of leading in practice Leading and Managing People in Education is suitable for providers and students in higher educational institutions postgraduate level courses in educational management and leadership development provision for Headteachers induction programmes, NPQH and LPSH. It is also suitable for use on short courses and for practitioners occupying or aspiring to leadership roles in schools, colleges and other educational organizations.
