Situational Leadership


Definition: Situational Leadership is a 1968 model by Blanchard and Hersey that argues there is no single 'best' style of leadership. Managers or leaders should adapt their leadership style to:
- The task, job or function at hand
- The maturity of the individual or group they are attempting to lead or influence for the task at hand.
The chosen Style could be: S1: Telling, S2: Selling, S3: Participating, or S4: Delegating.
The Maturity of the person or group being led could be: M1: Unable and insecure, M2: Unable but willing, M3: Capable but unwilling, M4: Very capable and confident.
