In modern situational leadership models, the two primary factors we use to determine an appropriate leadership style are:
• Competence, or capability
• Commitment, or Enthusiasm

Learners progress through a series of stages:
1. Low capability, but high levels of enthusiasm
2. Low (but somewhat growing) capability
3. Emerging capability, with variable enthusiasm
4. High capability, with strong confidence

The four styles of leadership combine different levels of:
• Task-oriented Instruction
• Relationship-oriented support

To give:
1. Instructing
2. Persuading
3. Assisting
4. Entrusting

Think back to two recent times when you had a task for someone. For each instance, assess:
1. their capability to handle that task (2 MC CPD Points)
2. their confidence and enthusiasm to take on that task (2 MC CPD Points)
3. Determine which leadership style would have been best (2 MC CPD Points)
4. Consider how those styles differ from how you really led your team. What can you learn? (4 MC CPD Points)

There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

📖 Leaders Eat Last
📖 Start with Why
📖 Humble Leadership
📖 The Leadership Challenge
📖 The New Leaders
📖 Shackleton’s Way
📖 Why should Anyone be Led by You
📖 The Habit of Excellence
