Situational Leadership Focused Podcasts Tailored for Contractor & Trades Success
Applying Situational Leadership Thinking to the Trades & Small Business
What is Situational Leadership?
“Situational Leadership® is a flexible framework that enables leaders to tailor their approach to the needs of their team or individual members. Developed by Dr. Paul Hersey and Dr. Ken Blanchard, this model provides a repeatable process for matching leadership behaviors to the performance needs of those being influenced. Unlike other leadership models, Situational Leadership® recognizes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, allowing leaders to adapt their behaviors to suit the unique needs of each situation.” – The Center for Leadership Studies
One of our most listened-to Podcast Series on our channel, Out of the Hourglass, the SLII Experience™ Series is facilitated by NCG Senior Business Coach Colin Nolan. As a Certified Trainer of the Leadership Program, Colin walks us through each development and support level of the Leadership Model, as well as the different characteristics and misconceptions that are attributed to each level!. Here at Nolan Consulting Group, we love how model emphasizes flexibility, recognizing that effective leadership isn’t one-size-fits-all. Instead, it requires leaders to assess individual and situational variables to determine the most appropriate leadership style.
** We encourage listening to the episodes in numerical order starting with S.M.A.R.T. Goals, Ep. 19.
“SLII is an easy-to-understand, practical framework that enables your managers to diagnose the development level of an employee for a task: D1 – Enthusiastic Beginner; D2 – Disillusioned Learner; D3 – Capable, but Cautious Contributor; and D4 – Self-Reliant Achiever. Managers then use the appropriate directive and supportive behaviors to help them succeed: S1 – Directing; S2 – Coaching; S3 – Supporting; and S4 – Delegating.” – Ken Blanchard, Blanchard.Com
