This book takes the traditional language about helping teachers change and transforms it into practical how-to language. By knowing my own strengths and having language identify others' strengths, I am able to meet their needs during change far more effectively than I could without that knowledge. Practical, straight forward, and full of dog-eared pages so I can find them easily, this has become an indispensable part of my library.
