The language leaders use is their most important means of connecting with the people around them. Dr. Quintin Shepherd, a highly regarded school administrator and a true visionary for the future of education, offers practical advice about why and how to adopt a new language of leadership—and he models it whenever he speaks.

In his book The Secret to Transformational Leadership, Quintin and explores the evolution of the language of leadership over generations and shares insights from his career as the superintendent at Victoria Independent School District in Victoria, Texas. He is straightforward about what no longer serves (such as leadership based on competence alone) and how you can unlock new potential in yourself and those with whom you work by shifting the language you use. For example, by focusing on the goals and outcomes you want for others, as opposed to what you want from them, your words can change the working dynamics in seconds.
