In this two-hour workshop, presented by guest facilitator Honora Eskridge, managers will learn the theory of the “Four Frames of Leadership” originally developed by Lee Bolman and Terrance Deal in their book, Reframing Organizations. The Four Frames model powerfully brings together different leadership theories into a useful and memorable model that can be applied in day-to-day situations. The four frames can help you develop multiple approaches to a situation, go beyond your natural strengths, and aid you in becoming more effective as a worker, manager and leader.
