This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in preceding chapters of this book. The authors wanted to leave with the words of wisdom from highly effective leadership experts. In their research, Barry Posner and Jim Kouzes have found that the skill that sets leaders apart from individual contributors is their ability to be forward-looking. It's the distinguishing leadership practice. It's also the skill that's the toughest to master especially for younger leaders. They find in their research that college students, for example, value being forward-looking less than more experienced leaders. There are so many immediate priorities that can steal your time and attention away from looking to the future. But to become an exemplary leader one have to spend more time, not less, reflecting on the forces that are shaping people's lives. In the same way, one can develop and grow in their role as a school leader to become more effective and more inspirational to their staff.
