Publisher's Summary

At the best of times, leadership is messy. It's about a way of being, not doing. It's nebulous, nuanced, and elusive, as much to do with feeling and energy as thinking and planning. It's contextual and responsive and can never be one size fits all. When great leaders are in balance, they are both ferocious about the moral purpose and courageously making a stand, while warmly building strong and enduring relationships. This seeming paradox comes together in what Tracey Ezard calls Ferocious Warmth. Leading within the tension of both epitomises the daily dance of leadership. When you meet a Ferocious Warmth leader, you know it. It is art and science in partnership, a constant flow between the head and the heart and an essential skill for leaders who seek to inspire and transform education.

In this book, Tracey Ezard unpacks the elements of the Ferocious Warmth leader. Through stories, discussions with leaders in the field and research, she uncovers a new approach that will help education leaders everywhere find the sweet spot of leading results and relationships, strategy and culture, task and people.

Ferocious Warmth is firmly and unashamedly a book to celebrate the humanness seen in educational leaders everywhere, to pose questions and seek to answer them. It is a crucial book for those seeking to elevate their leadership.

Insightful, Practical, Inspiring

A thorough and highly researched book offering a deeply rich guide to effective leadership within schools which could also be applied to anything else. Beautifully narrated by the author herself.

not my cup of tea

I found the narrator hard to listen to and that the book took a very long time to progress.
