What is "situational leadership?"  
Situational Leadership refers to a leadership style in which a leader adapts his/her leadership style according to the situation. Ken Blanchard (prominent author, speaker and management consultant) and Dr. Paul Hersey (renown behavior scientist, author, speaker and businessman) developed the situational leadership model. The basis of this model describes leadership styles in terms of the amount of direction and support a leader gives to his/her followers. An effective leader would, therefore, be able change his/her approach according to the situation, selecting the most preferred style, whether it be directing, coaching, supporting, or delegating. Other experts feel that there are three basic types of leadership styles: authoritarian; participative; and delegative and that while most leaders use all three styles at one time or another, one of them usually dominates the way they manage people. Check with some of the references listed here to learn more about leadership styles.
