“Reframing Organizations: Artistry, Choice and Leadership” by Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal

His Take:
“This book examines organizational leadership and dynamics through four frames: Structural, Human Resource, Political and Symbolic. My theory is that the process of organizational change faces its greatest threat in the Political frame because of the power of status quo. Changing the status quo often means making people uncomfortable, and lack of buy-in can either blunt or derail the process. I recommend this book for any leader looking to understand and leverage the role of people in the success of their organization.”
