The Situational Leadership® Model is arguably the most recognised, utilised and effective leadership and influence tool that has been developed. Dr. Paul Hersey's task-specific, original Situational Leadership® Model is based on the relationship between leaders and followers and serves as a framework to analyse each situation based on:

  • The amount of guidance and direction (task behaviour) a leader gives
  • The amount of socio-emotional support (relationship behaviour) a leader provides
  • The readiness level that followers exhibit in performing a specific task, function, or objective

To be successful in today's work environment, a leader must learn to appropriately balance their task direction with the proper relationship behaviour, enabling high levels of consistent performance across teams.

Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders provides leaders with an action-oriented framework that increases both the quantity and quality of performance conversations by matching an individual's Performance Readiness® Level for a specific task with the appropriate leadership style. This task focus is at the heart of Situational Leadership® and is paramount to ensuring that your organisation is equipped with capable situational leaders who can drive positive behaviour change.

Deployed in more than 70% of Fortune 500 companies, Situational Leadership® equips leaders in your organisation with the tools necessary to skillfully navigate the demands of an increasingly diverse workforce and evolving global marketplace. Infinitely adaptable to any circumstance, the model prepares leaders to address the most pressing challenges pervasive in today's work environment.
