LYIS Release

We are pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated book, “Leading Your International School.”

About the book:

Leading Your International School is the first in a planned series of guidance books for international schools and their leaders, offering a unique perspective into the world of international education and practical advice on how to enhance your leadership skills.

Written by André Double and Warren Cook, the book is the result of thousands of hours of collaboration with school leaders – including first-hand accounts of how school visions are developed, agreed upon, and implemented. It also delves into the critical role that Human Resource Management plays in our agile schools, as well as the importance of building a strong school culture and the practical steps needed for doing so.

LYIS is now available on Amazon, Kindle, Smashwords, Apple books, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd, Odilo and Gardners Extended Retail.

About the book cover:
The book cover features a stunning image of Ivanhoe Grammar School building at the core, which represents the essence of international school leadership. According to André, “Too many book covers are an afterthought, done in haste at the end of an exhaustive writing journey. When you go to the trouble of dedicating your life to something, what you see on the outside represents what you’re about on the inside.”

The school in the cover photo was designed by Australian architects McBride Charles Ryan and photographed by the renowned John Gollings, and represents the pinnacle of their talent and expertise. The colours used in the book cover reflect the ability of light to enter and exit the building at different points, creating a myriad of perspectives. This is critical for the modern-day international school principal, who must be able to see things from different angles and adapt to changing circumstances.

“Leading Your International School” is a comprehensive guide for international school leaders, offering practical advice and real-world examples on how to promote ethical leadership, sustainability, and the UN SDGs in their schools. With its innovative approach and well-researched content, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in enhancing their leadership skills in the international education sector.

Leading Your International School is committed to promoting sustainable leadership practices and providing high-quality professional development services and resources for international school leaders.
