Nonprofit executives face many complex challenges on a daily basis, and often these challenges have no easy resolution. Using The Four Frames of Leadership, based on the classic work of Lee G. Bolman and Terrance E. Deal, this multi-part series provides a lens to reframe leadership challenges and to assist managers and leaders to approach challenges through different behavioral frameworks. Leaders will leave with fresh perspectives on decision making with the ability to reframe challenges in new, more objective ways. This multi-part workshop will include interactive sessions to introduce and use the four frames to consider approaches to organizational challenges and provide a safe space and sense of community for its participants.
This is an advanced workshop specifically for nonprofit executives, limit 1 per organization.
Dates: June 14th, 21st, and 28th from 1-5pm each day
By the end of the session, participants will:
Be able to articulate Bolman and Deal’s Four Framework approach to leadership in practice;
Analyze how the Four Framework approach can be applied to leadership;
Determine which frame in the model (structural, human resources, political or symbolic) that best fits their current challenges;
Develop at least 3 action steps related to the identified frame to implement in their curriculum development process.
