Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 25, 11:05 AM

Can we anticipate unexpected events? Yes, but we cannot anticipate what they will be. What we can do is work on being present and attentive. The laziness is interesting. Do we use statistics without looking at what they mean in a given context. The other night I sat in on a panel and there was no reference to how a number might play out in a specific school setting or classroom or students lives.

John Michel's curator insight, September 25, 3:13 PM

Waiting too long for others’ input. Failing to get the right input at the right time. Failing to understand that input through insufficient skills. Failing to understand when something that worked in the past will not work now. Failing to know when to make a decision without all the right information and when to wait for more advice. It’s no wonder good people make bad decisions. The path to good decision making is narrow, and it’s far from straight. But keeping in mind the pitfalls can make any leader a more effective decision maker.
