Most people have a tendency to define people in the workplace into 2 categories. You are either a leader or you are a follower. However, according to the study by Hersey and Blanchard, this is not the case and I could not agree more! The truth is leaders do not always need to lead and followers do not always need to follow.

Understanding the "situational" leadership concept is actually freeing. It gives people a choice by allowing them to measure up any situation and then choose what role they want to play. It is really a simple question that we can ask ourselves, Do you want to take the lead or would you prefer to rely on others? I love the 2 step approach. Just measure and choose. It's that easy.
