Abstract: Leaders often pride themselves in the fact that they “treat all their team members the same”. From an anti-bias, inclusive perspective, it is important for leaders to treat all their team members fairly and consistently, but not the same. Each team member is an individual with individual needs. The most effective leaders understand that there is no “one size fits all” approach to leading, and that it is the leader’s responsibility to adjust their approach according to the needs of the individual team member.

Situational leadership theory, first proposed in the 1970s by Ken Blanchard and Paul Hersey, suggests that leaders should adjust the amount of direction and support they provide according to each team member’s capabilities and confidence levels. This course will explain the 4 development levels and corresponding leadership styles proposed by Situational Leadership theory.

By the end of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand what situational leadership theory is.
  • Understand the 4 development levels and how to identify them.
  • Understand the corresponding 4 leadership styles.
  • Be able to apply the appropriate leadership style to the appropriate situation
