SLII®® II (SLII) is recognized as both a business language and a framework for employee development that transcends cultural, linguistic, and geographical boundaries. 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.
Situational Self Leadership
Enabling individuals to transition from responsiveness to responsibility encourages initiative, idea generation, and problem solving. The confidence an individual gains from this type of empowerment improves autonomy, performance and commitment.
Becoming a first-time manager is one of the most challenging and critical transitions. New managers are often chosen from high-performing individuals. These highly proficient doers quickly become struggling new managers, without the methods or skills needed to succeed. The failure rates are daunting. Those given the opportunity to move into management are the very individuals chosen by their organization to be tomorrow’s leaders. Yet, they are often left unsupported as they struggle to intuit their way to success.
Based on the Building Trust Model™, Blanchard’s Building Trust program teaches people how to build trust and, if it’s been broken, how to repair it. The model is easy to learn, easy to remember, and most importantly easy to use on the job. The elements of trust (ABCD) form a common language for people to talk about trust without fear. By using the Building Trust Model, individuals are able to look at their relationships and focus on the aspects of those relationships that need repair. Understanding what behaviors lead to high trust is the first step in developing higher trust with others.
