    Situational Leadership® II (SLII) 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.

    Leveraging the theory and design that has made Situational Leadership® II the world's most taught leadership training model, our award-winning learning design, this program uses game-changing techniques that immerse learners in SLII quickly, deeply, and effectively.

    • Increase the frequency and quality of conversations about performance and development
    • Create a communication model for all levels of the organization to support cultural change and move toward a high-performance organization
