There are 4 main leadership styles, picking the relevant one depends the development level of the person related to the assignment. See Development levels
- Directing is the most restrictive. Tell the employee what to do. I don't ask. I decide. I tell you. It's more about building competence than confidence, so very directive, but less supportive.
- Focusing is setting the course based on inputs from employees. I ask. I decide. I tell you.
- Facilitating is coaching others through, removes roadblocks. I ask. You decide. You tell me
- Delegating is giving clear assignments, and leaving employee realize it. You decide. You tell me. I support you
Situational Leadership is tailoring the leadership style to the person's development stage in a given context. Person can be evaluated on competence and motivation. Low motivation and competence calls for directing. High motivation and competence calls for delegating. In between calls for focusing or facilitating.
- Coaching is a leadership style that works when person has skills and motivation.
- Motivation is used to determine which leadership-style suits the best
- Delegation Framework need to take the appropriate leadership style into account
- [[SLII]] evaluate development level and map the right leadership style in front
Also Ken Blanchard / SLII:
notes from SLII training

Style 1 and 2 - Leader-led conversations = Alignment conversations.
Style 3 and 4 - Team-member led = One-one conversations.
