“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.
