Understanding The Situational Leadership Model
Situational leadership is adjusting your management approach to fit the demands of the team or individual team members in each particular situation or task. It adapts to the needs of the organization and the current working environment.
Situational leadership can help managers better adjust their working environment and leadership styles.
A situational model consists of employee competence and commitments. The levels vary in the challenge and performance. It also considers the complexity and extent to which leadership requires guidance and help.
This flexible approach helps leaders to adapt to each situation with a leadership style that empowers the employees to bring the best to each case.
There are two widely used models of situational leadership, one by Ken Blanchard and Paul Hershey and the other by Daniel Goleman.
