Situational leadership for startup growth

Situational leadership Situational leadership is a leadership style that has been developed and studied by Kenneth Blanchard and Paul Hersey. The process is so simple to both understand and apply that its creator, Dr Paul Hersey, often described it as “organised common sense.” In simple words, depending on where you are and the surrounding situation, you see the right leadership style that goes along with it.

Importance of situational leadership Applying situational leadership across organisational leaders, first-line managers, individual contributors and even teams can utilise its benefits in the following manner:

  • Maintain an acute awareness of their innate leadership-related strengths and areas for development.

  • Conduct highly effective coaching conversations by understanding when a particular leadership style has a high probability of success and when it does not.

  • Skillfully influence up, down and across the organisation by knowing when to be “consistent” and when to be “flexible.”

  • Create more productive teams/organisations by accelerating the development of individuals that are new to their role and/or are learning a new task.

  • Develop engaged, committed employees by effectively recognising and pro-actively addressing the dynamics of performance regression.

  • Effectively drive behavioral change and business results by communicating through a common, practical language of leadership.

Accelerate startup growth When you have just launched a startup, it is necessary to apply situational leadership across different company structures. One of the fresh aspects of working at a startup is the freedom.

In that scenario, situational leadership embraces assortment and eccentricity. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula to creating an engaged workforce that invokes positivity, creativity, and the spirit of an organisation.

What may be more important than your organisation’s awareness and recognition is the manager’s involvement in developing his/her team’s dynamic, while at the same time focusing on building relationships that encourage collaboration, engagement and retention. This is where applying situational leadership boosts the augmentation of a startup.
