Situational Leadership for Personal Effectiveness
The effective leader is the one who can convert resources into results in working with
and through others. Sometimes we observe managers work for long hours and devote
great energy in managing their people, yet they do not get top performance from them.
The results people produce largely depend on how they are led. Successful leaders are
those, who adapt their behaviour to meet the demands of their own situations. This
programme approaches the subject of leadership from a practical common-sense
perspective. It presents a logical framework – a model for use in analyzing what is
happening in any management situation, and selects the leadership style that is most
likely to produce results. The unique feature of this model is its universal applicability at
various level of management.
The program is specially designed for managers/ executives, who have to play leadership
role in handling a department in any organization such as industry, academic, non-
governmental organizations, and cooperative organizations.
