Situational Leadership

Situational Leadership

The leader's role has shifted dramatically in recent years. In the past, the emphasis was more on the leader as "boss." Today, leaders must be partners with their people; they can no longer lead with position power alone. 

Leaders must move from the "command-and-control" role of judging and evaluating to a role of ensuring accountability through supporting, coaching, and cheerleading.

Situational Leadership has endured as an effective approach to managing and motivating people because it fosters a partnership between the leader and the people that leader supports and depends upon. In other words, Situational Leadership is not something you do to people; it is something you do with them. The purpose of Situational Leadership course is to open up communication and to increase the quality and frequency of conversations about performance and development.


Course Objective

The 2 day course has the aim to equip the participants to become Situational Leaders; they will be able to develop people by providing effective leadership, over time, so that they can reach their highest level of performance. The process is based upon a relationship between an individual's development level (various combinations of competence and commitment) on a specific goal or task and the leadership style (various combinations of directive and supportive behaviour) that the leader provides.
