Navigating Uncertainty by Shelley Hasinoff
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In Navigating Uncertainty: Sensemaking for Educational Leaders, the authors introduce a 5-step sensemaking approach for managing the kinds of challenging problems, dilemmas, and crises that occur daily in educational systems. Drawing on complexity theory, social capital, and sensemaking, they make the case that educational leaders can no longer rely on traditional scientific principles or their own instincts to manage complex problems but need a new way to think about their certainties and their relationships. The authors illustrate their approach with scenarios, based on the real-life experiences of principals, superintendents, and deans and provide several innovative tools to help educational leaders better understand and navigate the uncertainties they face every day in their jobs.
