Situational Leadership II ®

the next step in your leadership journey

The most widely taught leadership model globally provides a practical framework for inspiration and accelerated performance

The pace of change today is so disruptive that visionary leadership is a requirement. Managers need a leadership training program that helps them be agile, lead situationally, and empower their people to succeed.

Situational Leadership II® (SLII®) teaches leaders how to build meaningful connections with coworkers that create sustainable impact. When this happens, employees are more productive and engaged, and their organizations excel.

SLII® is far more than a powerful leadership training program. It delivers exceptional Return on Investment (ROI) across the organization. Participants will further develop their leadership skills and respond to the individual needs of their team members.  Because ultimately, leadership is what you do with people, not to them.

Great leaders build meaningful connections

Great leaders give their people what they need, when they need it. That means; having authentic conversations that empower, caring about their growth, and seeing their promise.

Research shows that employees need different levels of direction and support depending on their level of competence and commitment. Despite this, over 50% of managers use only one leadership style—and the results are costly: turnover, disengagement, diminished productivity, missed opportunities, and more.

Leading situationally is a departure from management styles of the past, and is an approach that produces dramatically better returns than other methods.

In this program, the participant will learn a new language for leadership that will help increase the quality and quantity of conversations your managers have with their team members, accelerate their development, increase their performance, and support autonomy. Becoming a situational leader will allow each participant to partner with those they lead, giving them what they need to succeed.

Participants in the Situational Leadership II® program learn:
  • A proven and time-tested leadership model. An easy-to-understand, practical framework to diagnose the development level of an employee for a task and use the appropriate directive and supporter behaviours to help them succeed.

  • A framework to help managers accelerate the development of their direct reports from enthusiastic beginners to self-reliant achievers.

  • To speak a common language. When managers and team members speak the same language, misunderstandings, micromanaging, and frustration fade away. Issues that were once emotionally charged become productive exchanges.

  • How to improve retention. Leaders who match their style to the needs of their people improve morale, commitment, and engagement. Who would leave a job like that?

  • How to unleash creativity. Research shows that employees who feel supported by their manager are far more engaged—and that is the foundation of innovation.
