What Will I Learn?

  • Assess emotional states and maturity levels of those you lead.
  • Have a sense of what team members have to do to complete the job.
  • Learn to be fluid in your leadership style based on your business needs and who you’re working with.
  • Gain the trust of those you work with and keep your emotions neutral. Provide guidance and direction without adding emotions.
  • Develop your problem-solving and coaching skills as a leader to fix or improve outcomes.


The world is filled with diversity. And while it’s easier to use a one-size-fits-all approach in leadership, it’s not as effective as adapting a leadership style to fit the situation. This is where situational leadership comes in.

This discussion will cover various leadership styles and your ability to achieve results and manage personnel. This style will be fluid, always changing as the environment dictates. It will require you to assess the needs of your team and the business, and adjust your management style accordingly at any given time.
