Wise Leaders are Boundary Riders


‘Experience is a continuous flow’. When interruption occurs, it is sensible when the school leader can place boundaries on some portion of the flow. The school leader loosens their grasp when they a. have diminished abilities in placing constraints on the ongoing events; b. cannot keep pace with the flow, limiting an update of their actions, interpretations and; c. limit their focus on the interrupting conditions’ (Weick, 1995, p. 462).
