LinkedIn Missed goals, disappointing results, communication problems, and lack of engagement—leaders are called upon to resolve issues like these every day.

That person requires less hands-on supervision. All of us are at different levels of development depending on the task we are working on at any given time. To bring out the best in others, leadership must be tailored to the individual and situation. Giving people too much or too little direction has a negative impact on their development.

This model is based on the belief that people can and want to develop, and there is no best leadership style to encourage that development. Enthusiastic Beginners need a directing style, Disillusioned Learners need a coaching style, Capable but Cautious Contributors need a supporting style and Self-Reliant Achievers need a delegating style.

Development level varies from goal to goal or task to task. An individual can be at one level of development on one goal or task and be at a different level of development on another goal or task. For example, when I was a college professor, I loved to teach and write.

Clarifying goals involves making sure that people understand two things: first, what they are being asked to do—their areas of accountability—and second, what good performance looks like—the performance standards by which they will be evaluated.

What Is Situational Leadership®? How Flexibility Leads to Success

The theory has simple scales that a leader can use to give a "thumb in the wind" assessment of what leadership style to use. Maturity and competence of the group are often overlooked factors in good leadership and it helps to focus on these. There are situations in which the theory may be less applicable such as those involving time constraints and task complexity. Overview Situational Leadership Theory is really the short form for "Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Theory" and draws major views from contingency thinking. As the name implies, leadership depends upon each individual situation, and no single leadership style can be considered the best. For Hershey and Blanchard, tasks are different and each type of task requires a different leadership style.
