“In education, where we work with individuals who are each different, each with unique values, emotions, learning styles, and leadership styles, we are working in a very complex context. Colin Powell once said, “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution…” Jerry Covey’s book, Board Basics, does just that, simplifies and articulates sensible solutions. Thank you Jerry, for taking the time to put your decades of practitioner leadership experience into such a user friendly guide for our board and staff to use.”
