“A common-sense approach to combining the right amount of love and accountability to lift people and organizations to new heights.” —Jon Gordon, eleven-time bestselling author of The Power of Positive Leadership and The Energy Bus

What does it take to impact change? What tools and techniques can principals employ to maximize student achievement?

Walter Peddy’s Lift for Principals is a guide that supports educational leaders in the mission to impact the world student by student, teacher by teacher.

Through its parable story of Colby, principal of a struggling school, whose personal origins were supported through his grandfather who raised him, Lift offers insight and inspiration to those in the educational field. Colby’s lessons teach him how to care, coach others, and have courage through difficult moments.

Applying the parable of Colby to leadership principles, Peddy offers an in-depth guide to leadership methods, and equips readers with the tools, techniques, and decision-making strategies needed to lift their organization and personal leadership skills from good to great.

“When Dr. Peddy talks about ‘lifting’ he is talking about caring, coaching, and having the courage necessary to help people be the best they can be. Anybody that has a team needs to read this book and learn how to ‘lift’ using the 3Cs!” —Damon West, keynote speaker and bestselling author of The Coffee Bean
