Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Leadership
I love this business model – simply because I have a personal story that illustrates how it works. It suggests that there is a continuum of support that you can give to a member of staff depending on the readiness of the employee and the current state of the project. The readiness and states of project have a tendency not to progress in a linear fashion. Leaders need to adapt their style according to the current situation.
You can request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to share.
1. Recognise the illustrated Situational Leadership model
2. Plot the individuals in your team according to their performance
3. Determine the readiness of each of your team in the light of your current situation
4. Discuss with each of the team and adapt your leadership style in relation to both
Please do share your experiences with this model in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
