By Terrance E. Deal, Ted Purinton & Daria Cook Waetjen

This resource for school leaders examines types of networks—related to tasks, friendships, power, and culture—and provides tools for maximizing networks' positive schoolwide influence. You will find:

  • Samples of social network maps that illustrate the relationships among players in various types of networks
  • Steps for developing your own social network maps using interviews, surveys, and data analysis
  • Strategies and practical advice for managing social networks in support of school goals
