I had the opportunity to work with Dr. J.R. Green as a conference speaker and I must say that his presentations were exceptional. He delivered them with enthusiasm and conviction, which kept the audience engaged throughout. Dr. Green's expertise was always relevant and added value to the audience. He could inspire people to make a positive impact on others' lives. It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with him.

In this book, Dr. Green shares the process of transforming the organizational culture of Fairfield County Schools, a district in turmoil that had experienced twelve different school superintendents over a twenty-year period. When Dr. Green arrived as superintendent in 2012, the district was viewed as one of the most dysfunctional systems in the state of South Carolina.
Once described as “the graveyard for superintendents” by former South Carolina State Superintendent, Dr. Jim Rex, Fairfield County Schools has evolved into a model of innovation, student success, employee satisfaction, and community pride. During Dr. Green's tenure, Fairfield County Schools has produced the 2020 South Carolina Teacher of the Year, the 2021 South Carolina Superintendent of the Year, and the 2024 Secondary Principal of the Year.

Dr. Green will provide a firsthand account of the strategies and initiatives he used in leading the evolution of the district. He will leave the reader with valuable insights on how to create an environment of meaningful organizational change.
