Acknowledgements

Many people have helped, gently cajoled and often supported me in writing this book, sometimes consciously, sometimes unwittingly. I want to thank Loraine Powell, now a senior lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University, for her total intelligence and support during my studies and later. I also owe a debt of gratitude to my colleagues who work with the NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Headship) for all their insights and conversations along the way, and especially to Duncan Gawthorpe, Kathy Thompson and Jane Hewitt for their interest in the book. Many headteachers, and especially those involved in the case studies, gave unstintingly of their time and their honesty, and were enormously helpful. Finally, I must thank two people without whom this book would never have been possible. Professor Cedric Cullingford, of the University of Huddersfield, has been a constant source of inspiration and motivation over a number of years, and it was he who first suggested I write the book. However, without the support and typing from my wife Sue, it would never have been completed, I'm sure. My sincere thanks go to all of you.
