Situational Leadership: 

The World's Most Taught Leadership Model

SLII® Experience™
To be a leader others want to follow, managers need to set clear and attainable goals, provide the matching leadership style, and give appropriate feedback. The goal of a Situational Leader is to help others develop competence, motivation, and confidence. Situational Leadership®II (SLII®) boosts the effectiveness, impact, and dedication of leaders and teaches them to behave in alignment with their good intentions and with the developmental level of their employees.  The two-day session, with online pre and post-work, is the gold standard of Situational Leadership training. Hollywood-produced videos and online on-demand challenges post-training keep participants engaged to sustain outcomes even after our time together, and an all-new format is why managers highly rate this SLII experience.   Download the data sheet for more details!

Management Essentials

Becoming a manager is one of the most challenging and overwhelming career transitions an individual can face.  Research shows that less than 10 percent of managers were prepared for a leadership role. Promoting a high-performer without the proper management skills can have serious consequences for both the individual and the organization.  Based on the #1 best seller, The New One Minute Manager, the Management Essentials workshop introduces core competencies and skills managers require to achieve sustainable success and build positive relationships with their teams.  Perfect for first-time as well as more seasoned managers.
