header2I checked in with Tom Rooney, Superintendent of Lindsay Unified, to find out his recommended reading list (some of which was already on their website).

He told me: “The main book to help people realize the vision is Inevitable, Mass Customized Learning by Bea McGarvey.” Other helpful books:

  • Total Leaders by Schwahn and Spady explores five dimensions of leadership, including Visionary Leadership, Authentic Leadership, Cultural Leadership, Quality Leadership, and Service Leadership.


Maybe we should start a CompetencyWorks book group. What have been the most powerful books to help you on your way to competency education?
