Situational Leadership®: Building Leaders

Course Overview

The need for effective leadership is greater than ever. A recent CMI report found that 43% of workers rate their line managers as ineffective, failing to recognise or support their talents. The Situational Leadership® Model is arguably the most recognised, utilised and effective leadership and influence tool in the history of the behavioural sciences.

So it’s no surprise that 70% of Fortune500™ companies consider the tool as a critical component of their leadership development strategy. It transcends cultural and generational differences with a success rate that speaks for itself. Situational Leadership® is a proven model of effective leadership that has endured the test of time. It’s a practical approach which helps your people to be more effective in achieving their goals, and shows you, as a leader, how best to respond to their performance needs. More than ever, businesses need well-equipped and adaptable leaders.

We can help you rise to the challenge.

GBS is now pleased to offer our Building Leaders® course virtually as both public and in-house sessions.
