How To Adapt Your Leadership Style
It is clear that choosing the most effective leadership style depends very much on the person being led, the follower. However, keep in mind that development levels are also situational. A follower may be generally skilled, confident and motivated, but he or she would still need directing leadership when faced with a task requiring skills they don't yet have. By adopting the appropriate leadership style, the leader and his or her followers will build strong relationships, and the follower's development level will rise to the high competence and high commitment model, to everyone's benefit.
