Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders


Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders is a dynamic, engaging workshop that provides the fundamentals of a time-tested, behavioral model of how to best influence the performance of people. “Building Leaders” is an extremely flexible facilitated developmental experience.

PROGRAM LENGTH: 2 – 3 days
Situational Leadership® is the most prevalent leadership system used in the world – and has been for over 50 years. The workshop is based on client feedback and research and offers a simple, but powerful model of how to assess a person’s readiness to perform a task, and then adapt the leadership style, to achieve top results.

At ACT One International Corporation, we combine this model with Everything DiSC® Management, which helps leaders adapt their communication, based on personality styles. So the SL model helps leaders determine “what” needs to be communicated to an individual (or team), and DiSC helps determine “how” to best communicate it.

Leaders will learn how to analyze each situation based on

  • The readiness level a follower exhibits to perform a task
  • The amount of guidance and direction needed
  • The amount of socioemotional support needed

Four leadership competencies are developed:

  • Diagnose – Understand the situation being influenced
  • Adapt – Adjust behavior to match what is required
  • Communicate – Interact in a manner that is accepted and understood
  • Advance – Manage the progression or regression
  • Focused methodology to ensure goal and task alignment
  • Diagnostic skills to determine the skill and motivation levels of employees
  • Ability to consciously select a leadership style appropriate for a situation
  • Communication skills and a common language to effectively influence employee behavior
  • A process to effectively cover tough performance issues in an unemotional way
  • Accelerated development and retention of talent
  • Increased respect for and honoring of differences

Here’s what others are saying:
“I loved it! Great customization of case studies for our business. This allowed us to take away practical ideas to implement right away.”
“Everything is situational. Now I know how important it is to adapt my style.”
