Reframing - Perspective to analyze and examine various frames or windows of organizational environment. Each frame holds the potential of presenting its own image of reality and can help the leader to develop greater appreciation and deeper understanding of organizations. Endorsed as a four-frame model by Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal. They present the diverse perspectives of the structural, human resource, political and symbolic frames and use the following analogy. “Galileo discovered this when he devised the first telescope. Each lens that he added contributed to a more accurate image of the heavens. Successful managers take advantage of the same truth. They reframe until they understand the situation at hand.” Quotations taken from Reframing Organizations, by Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal (1997). Jossey-Bass Publishers
