Event description

Description

How do managers use communication to frame one reality over another?

How do leadership attributions form from this?

In this talk, Dr. Fairhurst will focus on the process of translating research on framing to help understand how managers and other organizational members can be generally smart and articulate, but unaware of the context-shaping features of their language. She will also focus on how we can use research on problem framing to understand how managers prefigure problems consistent with their preferred authority styles.
