Chapter 13: Developing the practice of framing . . . softly, softly catchee monkey
This chapter describes a general approach and a specific activity for introducing managers to the leadership work of framing. This can be difficult terrain because the practice of framing encounters managers’ very different beliefs about the nature of reality and the social world. This chapter offers a way of maintaining openness and interest in learning while engaging with material that runs the risk of creating defensiveness and shutting learning down! The general approach and framing activity are illustrated by drawing on the experience of a manager in a leadership programme.
