This workshop is foundational to the skill of leading and managing others. Some employees may require a great deal of direction, while others respond best to encouragement and recognition. As a result, those in leadership positions become more effective when they vary their leadership style according to the needs of their employees and the particulars of a given situation. Effective managers learn how to diagnose the situation and how to select the appropriate leadership style to match the skills and commitment of their employees. Leaders learn to build skills in diagnosing the competence and commitment of people to the tasks they’re assigned while learning to avoid problems of under-supervision or over-supervision.
