Leadership Is Never One-Size-Fits-All

No two people have the same levels of confidence and competence in their work, so it makes sense that they would need different amounts of direction and support. Unfortunately, most managers generally have one leadership style that they apply to everyone, in every situation.

54%

of leaders use only one leadership style, regardless of the situation.*

50%

of the time, leaders are using the incorrect leadership style with their employees and don’t meet their needs.

THE BEST LEADERS ARE Situational Leaders

Situational leaders give employees the right direction and support at the right time. They offer just the right amount of guidance and autonomy to help their team members succeed. They know how to develop competence and self-reliance, so that their team members can deliver results quicker for your organization

The Situational Leadership® II MODEL

The Situational Leadership® II model provides a simple, practical framework that helps your managers diagnose the needs of each person and provide the appropriate leadership style to meet those needs. Managers discover the four stages of development, from enthusiastic beginner (D1) to self-reliant achiever (D4), and ways to apply the corresponding directive and supportive behaviors, from directing (S1) to delegating (S4), to match the development needs of their team members.
