Communicate and Lead over Cultures
Title: The Power of Framing: Creating the Language of Leadership
Author: Gail T. Fairhurst
We have discussed how social identity categories matter, and in some ways, are just like a culture in terms of how we see things and how others see us. The example in the text is “you are one of those leaders whose identity always seems to be reduced to a demographic category…however well intentioned.”
You will apply Fairhurst’s general idea here to your own life. Think about how, given your prior analysis of your social identity, you are likely to have a similar identity dilemma .
Write down your version of the framing problem, and then formulate a framing strategy using Fairhurst’s framing advice.
