Her first book, Trust Matters: Leadership for Successful Schools (2004, Jossey-Bass), explores the experiences of three principals and the consequences of their successes and failures to build trust. Her latest book, Evocative Coaching: Transforming Schools One Conversation at a Time (2010, Jossey-Bass), describes a teacher-centered, no-fault, strengths-based approach to performance improvement.
