Individual and team performance varies by the competence and commitment with the task at hand. Leaders must be adept at diagnosing situations and versatile in applying the matching leadership style to improve the individual’s or team’s performance. Leaders at all levels will gain valuable insight into the behaviors of various leadership styles and the appropriate application of those styles in situations that improve the effectiveness and outcome. Participants will have their eyes opened to the characteristics of everyone’s worst nightmare leader, learn about leadership styles and versatility, and apply the concepts to turn their worst nightmare into a role model for leadership. This workshop is based on the Situational Leadership II model developed by Ken Blanchard.
