letting go of change details

November 5, 2012

The Fourth Way pushes beyond standardization, data-driven decision making, and target-obsessed distractions to forge an equal and interactive partnership among the people, the profession, and their government.  It enables educational leaders to “let go” of the details of change, steering broadly whenever they can and intervening directly only when they must – to restore safety, avoid harm, and remove incompetence and corruption from the system (Hargreaves & Shirley, 2009, p. 71).
