History and reputation
The Situational Leadership approach became a part of the business knowledge due to its practical experience and entered into the world's leading leadership trainings. Situational Leadership is based on the contingency theory known from behavioural sciences modelled for the first time (referring to the relationship between leaders and followers) by Dr. Paul Hersey and Blanchard in the early 1970s in the USA. In the spirit of the model, almost 10 million people were developing their skills all over the world, from Japan to Latin America and from Sweden to the USA. The situation-oriented method became one of the most accepted approach of business practice in the last 40 years.
What does the participant receive?
The Situational Leadership model provides leaders with an understanding of the relationship between an effective style of leadership and the level of readiness followers’ exhibit for a specific task and with assessment and the development of the competencies they need.
What is the benefit for the company?
Leaders create the culture of effective leadership in the organisation by the application of the method, so they will be freed from the non-management tasks. Employees become more and more satisfied and motivated as they receive on-request support for the success of their work.
