@Comfyshoes - The situational leadership model does give a leader guidance regarding difficult conflicts, but I think that people with true leadership skills instinctively know what to do and how to get their employees excited about their jobs.
These people are gifted in this area and I don’t think that this form of training would help them. I think that great leaders are people that are willing to take courageous steps in improving their department and are not afraid of being slightly unpopular in the beginning in order to change things for the better.
They often are respected because of the actions that they chose which is why I don’t know if this type of situational leadership training would help these people. You really can't teach courage and I think that these people are all about courage and vision.
