Leadership Style Organizational Structural Match (Assessment)

This tool is designed to help educational leaders determine the extent to which their beliefs and leadership behaviors are consistent with the four organizational frames described by Bolman and Deal. Each of the four frames – Human Resource, Structural, Political, and Symbolic, — has its own vision of reality and it is only when leaders can look through all four are they likely to appreciate the depth and complexity of organizational life. This tool will assist leaders to become more successful as they “frame and reframe” using all four until they understand better the situation at hand. This reframing process will assist educational leaders in using the “leadership language” that can be heard and understood by all stakeholders.
