Reframing Leadership In The Algerian Higher Education Institutions

Authors : Ahmed Fouatih Mohamed .


This study was based on the four frames of leadership by Bolman and Deal. These researchers proposed that leaders should look at and approach organizational issues from four perspectives, which they called “frames”. According to them effective leaders were those who were able to access and utilize all the four frames (structural, human resource, political, and symbolic) and who could determine which frame would be most appropriately used depending on the situation and the people involved. Under the permission of professor lee Bolman we used section one from the leadership orientations instrument to investigate which frames do the leaders and the managers from Algerian higher education institutions report as the most dominant and how many frames they use.
