    particular “territory” (Bolman and Deal 11). In this manner, the manager can begin to understand the abstract ideas in their own mind versus that of events that are actually occurring (outside of their mind) in reality. This is how “framing” becomes a theoretical foundation for Bolman and Deal’s (2008) attempt to “reframe” the mind through multiple perspectives to eliminate impractical preconceived notions and narrow-minded leadership objectives. Finally, Bolman and Deal (2008) define the process of ‘frame breaking” by introducing the four frames of (1) factories, (2) families, (3) jungles, (4) theaters as part of the multiple perspectives that a leader can incorporate into their new mindset. These frames provide a social, political, naturalistic, and ritualistic perspective of how people work together in an organization. More so, the concept of multi-frame thinking can expand the leader’s mindset to even greater perceptions of managerial operations on a much broader scale. This is how reframing becomes the most important objective for the manager, since they now understand the “big picture” through these four frames of understanding.
