Check out The Seven Stages of FrameWorks Learning - I just found this site and it's replete with short, useful pieces and how-to's for all of us framing geeks out there.
- Denial, in which you can't believe that what you've done in the past doesn't work, even though you know better, and can only dimly see how you might do it differently.
- Wonder and Ah-Ha!, in which suddenly everything you see is Framing! Framing! Framing!
- Paralysis, in which you are afraid to frame because you know the bad frames are in you.
- Assimilation, in which you hunker down, read and think more, and try to learn how to get yourself unstuck.
- Awkwardness, in which your frame has the head of a cat and the tail of a dog, but you recognize it and keep trying.
- Integration, in which you successfully reframe a piece and it works, and you keep doing it, and it works better.
- Conversion, in which you realize that you had better share your knowledge with your colleagues and coalitions or their frames will undermine yours.
I think I've been in stage 3 for a while and am about to begin stage 4. I'll also be posting about the larger issue (to me, anyway) of how to change minds.
