Situational Leadership II

The purpose of the course is to provide the participants with a clear and structured approach to individual and team development, by using the SLII model to customize own leadership behavior to the specific employee and situation.


Situational Leadership® II is a model for developing individuals to their highest level of performance on a specific goal or task. It helps create a shared language for talking about leadership.

SLII is based on the relationship between an individual’s development level (competence and commitment) on a specific goal or task and the leadership style (direction and support) the leader provides. Effective leadership lies in matching the appropriate leadership style to the individual’s development level. When leaders are Situational Leaders, they partner with their people, working side by side to align on goals, development levels, and leadership styles.

This “match,” using the common language of SLII, contributes to higher trust, positive intentions, and significant results.

This course is aimed at all formal and in-formal leaders with people management responsibilities, or individuals on the path to becoming leaders. Individuals not in a formal leader role will also greatly benefit from this course, as it provides a leadership language useful to know for both leaders and employees.
