Situational Leadership® II for Government Program Situational Leadership® II (SLII) is recognized as both a business language and a framework for employee development that trancends cultural, linguistic, and geographical boundaries. Its foundation lies in teaching leaders to diagnose the needs of an individual or a team and then use the appropriate leadership style to respond to the needs of the person. Situational Leadership® II for Government applies the SLII model and concepts using actual scenarios and examples that occur in the government sector. This program addresses the unique issues leaders face in a government setting—such as effecting change, creating a sense of urgency, and developing work teams with a common purpose. All teaching examples and exercises focus on real-work situations that resonate with government learners. The focus of the classroom experience is on applying the concepts of SLII in a government setting to enhance contextual understanding and to increase application back on the job. Build Morale.
