This course uses Bolman and Deal's Four-Frame Model to expand the versatility and effectiveness of leaders, by allowing them to act from perspectives appropriate the situations they face. These perspectives include:
* Structural Frame – organization as a factory or machine, making sure rules, roles, and process are attuned to objectives, environment, and technology
* Human Resource Frame – organization as a family, making sure the team is aligned, empowered, and fulfilled
* Political Frame – organization as an arena, with appropriately developed advocacy and power base frameworks, and an environment for productive handling of competition and conflict
* Symbolic frame – organization as theater, that inspires faith, beauty, and meaning.
