Commercial Situational Leadership Models

In the last video, I described a basic generic model of Situational Leadership. There are two detailed commercial Situational Leadership models on the market:
1. Paul Hersey’s trademarked Situational Leadership® model
2. Ken Blanchard’s trademarked SLII® model

📝 LESSON NOTES
The original commercial Situational Leadership model was created and marketed by Hersey and Blanchard. But, sometime in the 1990s, the two founders went their own ways, founding:
• The Center for Leadership Studies, which markets Paul Hersey’s Situational Leadership® model
https://situational.com/
• Blanchard, which markets Ken Blanchard’s trademarked SLII® model
https://www.blanchard.com

Paul Hersey’s Situational Leadership®

📚 RECOMMENDED READING
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:
