Situational Leadership 2
If leaders are to be partners with the people they work with, they need skills that will enable them (1) to find out what individuals need in order to accomplish their personal and organisation goals, (2) to use a variety of leadership styles to meet those needs, and (3) to set up a communication process for reaching agreements about what the leader and the individual can expect from each other as they work together. These three skills – Diagnosis, Flexibility and Partnering for Performance are the focus of this course.
