John C. Daresh is professor of educational leadership at the University of Texas at El Paso. Over the years, he has held faculty or administrative appointments at the University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University, the University of Northern Colorado, and Illinois State University.

Part 1 contains three chapters that examine the tradition and context of educational supervision.

Today’'s effective school leaders look at their responsibilities holistically, not as a series of tasks and responses to emergencies. The latest edition of this well-established text stresses the development of the skills, knowledge, and attitudes essential for inspired, proactive leadership that increases the quality of educational programs. It provides future administrators and supervisors with insights on exercising power and authority, dealing with conflict, and working with groups, as well as valuable advice on motivation, communication, and managing change. While maintaining its original focus on applying foundational theories and models to supervisory activities in schools, the fourth edition adds a chapter on accountability and discusses the impact of the No Child Left Behind legislation. The author’s belief that leaders have a responsibility to increase the opportunities for followers to influence organizational goals and outcomes is reflected in a new discussion of distributive leadership. In addition to useful case studies and engaging activities, an end-of-chapter section has been added to encourage readers to apply concepts to real-world issues and practices.
