Situational Leadership II Program

Situational Leadership II (SLII) is recognized as both a business language and a framework for employee development that transcends 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.

Leveraging all the theory and design that has made Situational Leadership II the world's most taught leadership training model, our new learning design, The SLII Experience, uses game-changing techniques that immerse learners in SLII quickly, deeply, and effectively.

Bringing together highly engaging classroom activities with pre- and post-tools helps reinforce, measure, and cement learning. Short, fast-paced learning scenarios using real work problems capture learners' attention. The outcome is that learners get up-to-speed and start using SLII faster than ever before.


Emotionally compelling videos, leveraging Hollywood talent, draw learners into character challenges, helping link content to practice and showing them the painful ramifications of not using SLII. Videos model effective peer-to-peer interactions and "match and mismatch" scenarios for multiple managers.


Learners are taken to the edge of their comfort zone and participate in challenging activities that require them to demonstrate their familiarity with SLII content and teach them how to integrate material into their own personal leadership style.

Sustain and reinforce Learning

A self-study, momentum building video called The Power of SLII drives excitement and anticipation on the front end of learning and managers can use it as a refresher with team members so that everyone can learn the language of SLII.


Access to videos, game cards, conversation starters, and streamlined participant materials include a new 12-module SLII Challenge, SLII Fitness Test, Goals Worksheet, SLII Worksheet, and One on One Worksheet. The SLII Diagnosis App for smart phones and mobile tablets enables diagnosis and coaching in real-time and can be shared with team members.
