Situational Leadership - Building Leaders

Public Safety Building, 1100 SW Smith Street, Blue Springs, MO

The Situational Leadership® Model equips leaders with the skills to match their behaviors with the performance needs of the individual or group that they are attempting to influence. Based on two fundamental research questions: “What is the best leadership style?” and “What are the driving forces behind human motivation?” the Situational Leadership® Model focuses on the relationship between leaders and followers and provides a framework to analyze each situation depending on the Performance Readiness® Level that a follower exhibits in performing a specific task. The leader then responds with the necessary amounts of supportive behavior and directive behavior to advance development.

Also included with the class is a 12-question pre-class assessment which will be reviewed during the class to help you review your leadership style.  The people you invite to provide you with feedback are also answering the same 12 questions about your typical leadership approach.

Course objectives
