The Situational Leadership® II model is an easy-to-understand, practical framework that helps your managers diagnose the needs of their people and then provide the appropriate leadership style to meet those needs. Your managers learn the four stages of development and how to apply the appropriate directive and supportive behaviors to match the development needs of their people. Success leads to success… leads to more success. Win. Win. Win.
The Best Leaders are Situational Leaders
Situational leaders give their people exactly what they need, when they need it. They offer guidance, caring, and autonomy, and provide just the right amount of direction and support to help their team members succeed. They know how to develop competent, self-reliant contributors who deliver faster results for your organization.
With the appropriate direction and support, people progress through development levels more quickly, accelerating their growth so they can deliver greater value to your company.
When managers and team members speak the same language, hours of discussion and frustration can be avoided. A common language boosts effectiveness and creates a culture focused on high performance.
Leaders who match their style to the needs of their people raise morale, make others feel valued, and ultimately increase commitment, engagement, and retention.
When employees feel that their managers have their best interests at heart, they perform better, are more creative, and seek optimal solutions to problems.
Research – and maybe, when we think about it, human instinct — shows us that different employees need different levels of direction and support depending on their level of competence and commitment. The problem is that most managers have only one leadership style that they apply to everyone, in every situation.
54% of leaders use only one leadership style, regardless of the situation.
So, 50% of the time, leaders are using the wrong leadership style to meet the needs of their people.
