Based on The Situational Leader – the timeless classic by Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard, this webinar focuses on how people can be led in different ways at different times, depending on their Skill and Will (readiness level) for any given task. Effective leaders excel at first understanding followers’ readiness levels, and then at applying an appropriate leadership style (Directive, Coaching, Supporting, Delegating) to bring out the best in their team members. Flexing one’s leadership style based on each specific situation is one of the primary abilities of effective leadership. Over a 1.5-hour session, participants will learn to assess followers’ task-specific readiness, and practise applying the appropriate leadership styles in various scenarios. This webinar is open to managers who lead teams and are interested to learn how to apply the appropriate leadership styles to enable performance.
