    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Purpose: &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;In this research note, I reflect on the role of certainty in educational planning, amid the challenges to certainty posed by the COVID pandemic.&amp;nbsp; This reflection is autoethnographic, based on theoretical literature from the field of organizational leadership, as well as my own teaching observations.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Methods: &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Over the past several months, the COVID pandemic has undermined and frustrated efforts to plan the future.&amp;nbsp; In this paper a litterature review research was adopted.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Results: &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;The possibility opened by the pandemic is that organizational leadership can become more relational, fluid, and responsive; rather than relying on assumptions of certainty. To further enrich this argument, follow-up studies could explore specific examples and cases in which organizations have adjusted their assumptions regarding certainty, planning, and leadership.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Implications: &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Insight identified in this article has lasting implications for how educational institutions approach planning and how organizations can cultivate leadership to be more resilient and nimble.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
