About the summary

Principals and administrators, by definition, are in the business of making difficult decisions based on a wide range of questions, demands, information, and often competing priorities. Even a minor mistake can lead to negative effects on staff, faculty, and most devastatingly, students. What If I’m Wrong? shows that, by focusing on a small group of key questions, principals and administrators can find a clear path through the many complex challenges they face to become better leaders that oversee more effective schools. By helping leaders overcome their snap judgements and think more carefully about outcomes, avoid groupthink, and stop unthoughtfully following con­vention, this book is an effective resource to help principals and administrators benefit from the latest research in cognitive science and organizational theory.
