  2. 2. Leadership Style Leadership stages. S1…. S4
  3. 3. Leadership Style Moving through the 4 stages. S1  S4
  4. 4. Leadership Style • Directing (S1) • You give orders and directions • Example: During training, “I want you to do these stuff so do it the way I tell you and please don’t improvise”. • Coaching (S2) • You give directions and encouragement. • Example: check out this 3rd Party library and when he do, tell him something like “good work but I want to hear your opinions about it”, “Nice work but what do you think about this library ?”
  5. 5. Leadership Style • Supporting (S3) • Provide help if needed, encouragement and mentoring but not directing • Example: Can you search for a 3rd party library that does the following and use it ? • Delegating (S4) • No supporting or directing, just handing over the responsibility • Example: Please contact the client, try to resolve certain issue with him
  6. 6. Leadership Style • Every employee should be treated as special case. A lot of direction can get the employee frustrated or lower his self stem • Bad manager examples • They move from directing (S1) to delegating (S4). • Lazy managers • From coaching (S3) back to directing (S1). • Probably the employee wasn’t ready and manager should have noticed that. • Employee thinking: you were a nice guy what happened!!! • From supporting (S2) to delegating (S4) • Employee is not yet confident to drive himself.
  7. 7. Leadership Style • Factors affecting such relationship • Employee self-stem • Manager trust in the employee • Employee trust in the manager • Manager self-stem • For simplicity, assume employee and manager are self confident of themself. So you need to start building trust.

  9. 9. Leadership Style • When Moving from one stage to another, from S1 to S2, you need to lag a bit. Imagine yourself towing a cart, you can’t just change / reverse direction instantaneously. • Slowdown at the end of each stage before moving to the next one.
