What is it Situational Leadership®?

Situational Leadership® is a practical and repeatable method that leaders use to influence others. The first step in this model is to clearly define the task or objective that needs to be accomplished. In addition, both the leader and the follower assess the follower’s readiness to perform the task. Based on this assessment, leaders choose an approach or style that aligns with their desired outcome, such as empowerment, guidance, or collaboration. By selecting an appropriate style, leaders increase their chances of success in achieving the task at hand.

    Four Core Competencies

    The Four Core Competencies of Situational Leadership® theory, refer to a set of skills that effective leaders should possess in order to effectively lead and support their team or organization. These competencies include the ability to diagnose an individual’s performance readiness, adapt their leadership style based on the needs of the situation and the individual, communicate effectively with their team, and manage the movement towards higher performance.

    The Situational Leadership® model is based on the idea that the most effective leadership style will depend on the readiness of the individual or team being led. The model identifies four levels of readiness:

    1. R1: Unable and Insecure or Unwilling
    2. R2: Unable but Confident or Willing
    3. R3: Able but Insecure or Unwilling
    4. R4: Able and Confident and Willing

    The leader’s job is to diagnose the readiness level of the individual or team and then adapt their leadership style to match the needs of the situation. This may involve providing more support and guidance for individuals who are less skilled and less confident, while providing more autonomy and delegation for those who are more skilled and confident.

    Effective communication is also an important aspect of situational leadership®. The leader should be able to clearly articulate their expectations and provide feedback in a way that is understandable and accepted by the team. Finally, the leader should be able to manage the progress towards higher performance by setting goals, providing resources and support, and helping the team to overcome any obstacles or challenges that may arise.
