Situational Leadership

What is Situational Leadership ?

‘Situational Leadership’ is a kind of leadership model which states that there is no ‘best style’ of leadership. Effective leadership would be based on the tasks undertaken by the team being led.


Similarly, an effective leader who practices situational leadership would adapt themselves to suit their subordinates. Situational leadership would also vary a lot depending on the kind of task the team is undertaking as well as the designated jobs the individual members are partaking in.


The situational leadership theory was developed by Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard, while working on management of organizational behaviour in 1969. It was originally known as ‘Life Cycle Theory of Leadership’
