The Assessment Center process is the best method for identifying management potential in candidates and whether they can demonstrate a talent for planning and organizing, and possess the necessary judgment, communication skills and decision-making ability to move up the ranks. Many candidates do possess these abilities, but they have not learned how to apply them. This book will teach you how to use all your potential. Law enforcement officers are often confused, afraid, nervous or just plain curious about what they will experience when they go through the process. Most books on the assessment center process cover primarily its history, the skill dimensions, a description of the process and provide a few sample exercises. What makes this book different is that it provides an experiential approach to preparing for an assessment center by including numerous practice exercises, experiential learning, role player scripts, sample detailed Assessor Guides, and information from an experienced professional who has a 360-degree view of assessment center processes. By practicing these exercises, the reader will learn a great deal about their potential and abilities. The organization of this book starts with the notorious, challenging, perplexing, incorrectly defined and life-changing in-basket exercise. The author has many years of experience with in-baskets, which has included providing feedback to candidates and training assessors. Many of the essential sample exercises and components of the in-basket exercise are included in this book and have been used in past assessment center processes or in customized exercises. After reading the sample exercises and commentary contained herein, you will be convinced that your time and money have been well spent. Why? Because you will have practiced the exercises herein and, beyond just reading about the assessment center process, you will have learned about many of the most important components of the process.

Growing discontent with the performance of educational institutions is common in the USA today and little is being done to address the real problem - that of the need to reform and restructure the entire educational system. A key issue in this reform is the training and development of leaders in educational administration; as experienced "leaders" retire, so new professionals are called to assume the mantle of the "old hands" and vital new opportunities exist for those willing to take up the challenge.; This vitally practical text is about the selection, preparation and professional development of aspiring school leaders over the course of their careers, concentrating on ways to increase their overall effectiveness - particularly in changing times. It looks at changes that have been made and considers what can be adapted from existing systems in order to make radical improvements for those in leadership positions.; It is intended for use by postgraduate students in education, teacher trainings, heads of education faculties and teachers in leadership positions, school board members and aspirant superintendents.
