To be a leader others want to follow, managers need to set clear and attainable goals, provide the matching leadership style, and give appropriate feedback. The goal of a Situational Leader is to help others develop competence, motivation, and confidence. Situational Leadership® II (SLII®) boosts the effectiveness, impact, and dedication of leaders and teaches them to behave in alignment with their good intentions and with what their people need.
Recognized as both a business language and a framework for employee development that transcends cultural, linguistic, and geographical boundaries, the foundation of SLII lies in teaching leaders to diagnose the needs of an individual and then use the appropriate leadership style to respond to the needs of the person.
Leveraging all the theory and design that has made SLII the world’s most taught leadership training model for more than 35 years, our new learning design, The SLII Experience™, uses game-changing techniques that immerse learners in SLII quickly, deeply, and effectively.

Organizations can choose how they deliver The SLII Experience, allowing learners to be more in charge of their learning journey beyond the classroom.
Each delivery has a four-part learning experience. The four phases are
LAUNCH—a portfolio of assignments to set the context for learning and engage learners in the content of SLII
LEARN—learning activities to teach leaders the three skills, the language, and the six conversations of a Situational Leader
PRACTICE—learning activities to develop new skills through robust skill practice, applying what was learned to real work
MASTER—strategies to deepen and extend the learning so that it becomes second nature to set SMART goals, diagnose development level, and use the matching leadership style
By teaching managers three important skills—goal setting, diagnosing, and matching—SLII provides the framework for each person to become the kind of leader people want to follow.
