The Experience

“Leadership is not something you do to people. It’s something your do with people.” - Ken Blanchard

The SLII® Experience 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.


Core Focus: Developing high-performing, self-reliant employees by increasing the competence and commitment of your individual contributors through effective diagnosis and flexing your leadership to align with individual needs based on a specific task or goal.


Primary Learning Outcomes:

  • Diagnose the development levels of employees and choose the appropriate leadership style

  • Increase the frequency and quality of conversations about performance and development

  • Become a flexible leader who is highly skilled at goal setting, coaching, performance evaluation, active listening, feedback, and proactive problem solving

  • Learn a new language of leadership to partner for maximum productivity and morale


The program is a 4-part learning experience. These include

  • 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
