Moving Up! ranges in scope from determining whether you are interested in exploring a career in educational administration through all of the decisions administrators face-from where to sit in a meeting, to signing a contract, to dealing with difficult people, to decisions on the home front. It provides facts and choices for the reader, including real-life examples. Although the book addresses women, it is equally helpful to men who want to learn the ropes and know how women think and lead. A major point is that while womens leadership and collaborative styles are most appropriate to todays needs and that women possess the most effective characteristics for developing a cooperative, participatory management style, the best results come from merging the leadership strengths of both men and women. Well-written and readable, this book speaks to the reader in laymans terms while maintaining an academic purpose.
