Situational leadership is described as a model, not a theory. Under situational leadership, no one leadership style is appropriate for all situations. Leaders must adjust their styles according to the situation.
The situational leadership model focuses on leaders who lead and the followers who follower those leaders. Situational leadership also focuses on the potential leaders and potential followers
Paul Hersey states that situational leadership is based on interplay among the following amount of- direction, socio-emotional support, readiness.
The Socio-Economic Support is also known as the relationship behavior. The leader engages in two- way communications. Provided by socio-emotional support.
The SLM also focuses on maturity. Maturity is defined as the ability and willingness of people to take responsibility for directing their on behavior within the tasks they perform. The SLM allows leaders to adjust their leadership styles to accommodate followers. When the maturity levels of the followers increase. The leadership style changes. If the followers fall under the M1: Low or Immature levels, the leader must use the telling style. If the followers fall under the M3: Moderate to High, the leader can use the participating style.
The matrix describes how leaders lead. In the S1 quadrant, leader are telling or directing. In S2 leaders are selling or coaching ideas. In S3, leader are participating or supporting. In S4, leaders are delegating. The matrix is read from the bottom right. To the top right , to the top left, and finally to the bottom left.
