The Classic Leadership Resource Now In Its 4th Edition!
First published in 1984, Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal′s best–selling book has become a classic in the field. Its four–frame model examines organizations as factories, families, jungles, and theaters or temples:
The Structural Frame: how to organize and structure groups and teams to get results
The Human Resource Frame: how to tailor organizations to satisfy human needs, improve human resourcemanagement, and build positive interpersonal and group dynamics
The Political Frame: how to cope with power and conflict, build coalitions, hone political skills, and deal with internal and external politics
The Symbolic Frame: how to shape a culture that gives purpose and meaning to work, stage organizational drama for internal and external audiences, and build team spirit through ritual, ceremony, and story
This new edition contains a wealth of new examples from both the private and the nonprofit sectors. In addition, the book offers updated content and expanded discussions of self–managing teams, dramaturgical and institutional theory, change theory, the "blink" process, "black swans," and gay rights. There is an Instructor′s Guide available online.
