It is not uncommon to hear Situational Leadership® referred to as “organized common sense.” As a matter of fact, that is how our founder, Dr. Paul Hersey, used to describe it himself. The Situational Leadership® Model, which he dedicated the majority of his career to developing and refining, reduces the overwhelming number of leadership considerations into three commonsense questions:
- What is the task?
- What is the task-specific ability and willingness of the person performing it?
- What leadership style should I employ?
