Palestini, of St. Joseph's University and an expert on educational administration, describes theories of educational administration and their application, basing his approach on organizational development. Writing for graduate students, he describes the structure of schools, school culture, organizational leadership, and aspects of working with faculty and staff. Also of note are chapters on strategic planning, decision making, power and negotiation, making changes, and how to do an organizational diagnosis. A chapter on leading with "heart" describes his philosophy of dealing with people in a positive manner. Also printed in the book is Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium: Standards for School Leaders, which was the foundation for topics covered, as well as how to implement an online course, and a guide to drawing on the case studies.
