Healing Power of Leadership provides numerous straightforward and artful lessons that leaders from both formal and informal education sectors share about pivoting in times of intense turmoil. From displaying servant leadership skills to showcasing high levels of emotional intelligence with dealing with day-to-day COVID-19 lockdown situations in parks, museums, under-resourced schools, reservations, virtual learning platforms, community at-risk programs, and immigrant community organizations, these leaders highlight how to uniquely advance your organization’s mission while keeping in mind self and group wellbeing.

In this book, the word healing reminds us that our health is paramount to our survival on this planet. Healing derives from the Germanic word heilen and also has ties to an old English term haelen related to sound health restoration. This book is a collection of chapters that like-minded colleagues, who are either leaders or educators within their own unique spheres, wrote to support this idea of reassembling the pieces after COVID-19 struck. I still hold hope that humanity will prevail over this contagion. The unique perspective of servant leadership adopted in these chapters will enable the reader to digest and understand how educational and heritage leadership should occur as we continue to heal our institutions.
