Situational Leadership II Program
A language. A framework. A methodology. An approach. A philosophy. Over the years, Situational Leadership II (SLII) has delivered all these elements to the many of thousands of people who have learned the model and its associated behaviours.
Its foundation lies in teaching leaders to diagnose the needs of an individual or a team and then use the appropriate leadership style to respond to the needs of the person: a "simple truth" that transcends cultural, linguistic and geographical boundaries.
For more than three decades, The Ken Blanchard Companies has been sharing this approach with leaders at all levels, all over the globe, making Situational Leadership II the most taught leadership training model in the world. Not only have we been teaching the model, but we've been continually learning: what works? how can we deliver greatest impact? what is current research telling us about leadership development? In response, we've continually evolved the model and the way we teach it.
The latest edition, "The Situational Leadership II Experience", uses our most current research, coupled with game-changing techniques in learning design, to deliver an efficient, flexible, effective and highly engaging leadership development experience.
Bringing together highly engaging classroom activities with pre- and post-tools helps reinforce, measure, and cement learning. Short, fast-paced learning scenarios using real work problems capture learners' attention. The outcome is that learners get up-to-speed and start using SLII faster than ever before.
all new dramatic videos
Through the contemporary and compelling video case study, learners see a range of situations and characters which allow them to see the impact of effective and ineffective leadership behaviour. The video segments provide demonstrations of all key content, with a little humour along the way! Learners report that they can identify directly with many of the situations presented, or have people they lead who are "just like that".
bringing SLII to life
Many learners have built their careers "doing what they do" and it can be confronting to see the opportunities for greater flexibility in their leadership. The SLII Experience design shows learners how to integrate expanded leadership styles into their own personal reality - so they can begin using the techniques immediately.
LEARN THE SLII MODEL
In an unprecedented approach to leadership training, The SLII Experience participant kit includes a brand-new 35-minute training model that the leader can share with their people, so that everyone can use the language of SLII, improving the performance of an entire work team.
continuing access to electronic resources
The Situational Leadership II Experience participant kit includes a vast amount of implementation support resources, including access to many of the workshop videos, game cards, conversation starters, and streamlined participant materials. To help sustain learning, we've included a new 12-module SLII Challenge, SLII Fitness Test, Goals Worksheet, SLII Worksheet, and One on One Worksheet. There is even an SLII Diagnosis Application for smartphones and mobile tablets that enables diagnosis and coaching in real-time.
