Situational Leadership stresses flexibility and simplicity. It prepares leaders to address the most pressing challenges in today’s work environment.
Organizations need strong, yet flexible leaders. Leaders who can transform plans into action by working with individuals to ensure their jobs are meaningful and motivating. The new frontline leader is different from the command-and-control leader of the past. People aren’t interested in working for someone who just gives daily orders and conducts annual evaluations. Employees today are looking for leaders who will coach them by providing either direction or support (or both) as they attain their goals. In this seminar, leaders will learn how to focus on the future and create a motivating environment by defining a compelling vision and finding ways to help people discover how meaningful their work can be.
Situational Leadership is based on the relationship between leaders and followers. In this seminar, you’ll learn how to determine the amount of guidance and direction you need to give and the amount of socioemotional support you need to provide.
You’ll learn four critical leadership competencies.
• Diagnose: Understand the nuances of the specific situation you are trying to influence.
• Adapt: Adjust your behavior in response to the contingencies of the situation.
• Communicate: Interact with others in a manner they can understand and accept.
• Advance: Manage the movement toward higher performance.
At the end of this seminar, you will be able to:
• Identify the leadership styles you are most comfortable using, and then develop additional styles to use in specific situations.
• Diagnose the development level for each of your employees.
• Match the appropriate leadership style to your employees’ development level to provide the appropriate support he or she needs.
• Communicate performance direction clearly while building an employee’s self-esteem.
• Appropriately use praise and recognition to help improve employee’s performance.
• Delegate effectively with peak performers and coach and support those staff who are experiencing performance problems.
