Do you want to have better conversations with the people you lead? Would you like to better develop your team’s competence, commitment and self-reliance? How about increasing trust and having a stronger sense of partnership with colleagues?

One size does not fit all

Research shows that employees need different levels of direction and support depending on their level of competence and commitment. The problem is that most managers have only one leadership style that they apply to everyone, in every situation.

The best leaders are situational leaders

Situational leaders give their people exactly what they need, when they need it. They offer guidance, caring, and autonomy, and provide just the right amount of direction and support to help their team members succeed. They know how to develop competent, self-reliant contributors who deliver faster results for your organization.

To become the leader your people need, prepare to lead differently.

The world’s most widely taught leadership training model in the world is coming to Louisville, and it’s focused on how you match your leadership style with the unique needs of individuals. Situational Leadership® II is being offered to area leaders on May 16-17 through a partnership with The Ken Blanchard Companies and the Leadership Louisville Center. No need to travel for this amazing learning opportunity, which also includes 12 months of access to online tools and guidance to make the learning stick!

This two-day course is designed to help you be the leader others want to follow, set clear and attainable goals, and give appropriate feedback. As a result, you will help others develop competence, motivation, and confidence.
