Please refer to the resources provided on CDS Central. They are intended to help you engage effectively on the discussion board.

Read the case by Orians and Bergerson (2014), “Lessons Learned: Mountain College in the Midst of Change,” from the University Library.
Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following:

Discuss how the “dance of blind reflex” (Bolman & Gallos, 2011, as cited in Orians & Bergerson, 2014, p. 63) can affect the strategic thinking, planning, and doing of instructional leaders. How would you respond as an instructional leader in such a situation? Justify your response.

Include your own experience as well as 2 citations that align with or contradict your comments as sourced from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources. Cite your sources using APA formatting. If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.
Review your classmates’ posts. Respond to at least one of your colleagues in a post of at least 150 words. Explain why you agree or disagree with that post. Then, share an example from your professional experience to support your assertions.
