Situational Leadership

Do you recognize the following statements?

  • I have to coordinate several people, but I find it hard to do because everyone seems so different.
  • It is a challenge for me to guide and/or motivate colleagues and team members to deliver the desired results.
  • When I am guiding colleagues, I always steer other people in a way that works best for me.
  • I’m in a ‘coordinating role’ because I’m the ‘best in class’. But what people do not know, is that I am actually not sure how I can coordinate in the best way.


And? Did you recognize yourself in (some of) the statements? Then this training addresses just what you need to become a situational leader!


Training Goals:
The goal is to develop your knowledge, attitude and skills in situational leadership. This increases your ability to benefit the most of (the development of) your team/projectmembers, creating commitment and results.

After the training you will:

  • have better insight in effective leadership and the impact on motivation.
  • understand and be able to apply the tools and principles of situational leadership in your work.
  • be able to assess the appropriate development-level of your co-workers and apply the appropriate leadershipstyle towards your different colleagues.
  • Be able to optimize the development of your projectmembers and colleagues in their work.

Roel and Rutger will make sure that the evenings have sufficient room for theory, practice and questions, in a pleasant and safe atmosphere.

First evening:

  • The role of leadership in perspective  and introduction to the model of situational leadership.
  • Developing awareness  of what makes your leadership (role) effective.
  • Assessing the development-level on a particular task in an accurate way: theory and practice.
  • Discussion of the outcome of the test leadershipstyles: your preferred style, flexibility and effectiveness.
  • Homework for evening two: ‘take a fresh, closer look at your team-members’.


Second evening:

  • Looking at the different leadership styles: theory and practice.
  • ‘Making the match’:  theory and exercise.
  • Applying the discussed theory in a case which you bring in from your working environment.
  • How to create commitment in achieving  your results?
  • Homework for evening three: practising and exercising with the new insights.


Third evening.
You as participants will bring in topics which are currently relevant for you.
The topics will strongly depend on your needs as participants, but will be related to situational leadership and the mentioned topics above.
Some examples. What situations did you encounter which went well with your new insights? Where did it not go as you wanted or expected; and what could you do differently next time? What about motivating your co-workers? How to deal with ‘non-performance of your team members’?
