Your leaders must adjust their leadership style for each employee while considering the task and goal at hand, plus the competence and motivation level of the person they are leading. Leaders need to understand how to choose their leadership style based on these aspects and use them to influence behaviour and performance. Many leaders face the problem of defaulting to their “go-to” leadership style, which is most comfortable to them. The challenge then becomes assuming each employee will perform the same with the same results.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Leaders need to recognize that a “one size fits all” approach to leadership does not work, and each employee requires adapting to get the best possible results.
In this workshop, Situational Leadership, we teach participants about the importance of assigning tasks appropriately, explain the four leadership styles and dive deep into how to assess the competence and motivation of an employee.
