Developing Competence. Gaining Commitment. Retaining Talent.

A practical application of “The Way of the Carpenter” and next step to the Encounter leadership workshop, SLII® Connect is based on the three foundational skills of a Situational Leader.

You will engage in a learning experience that is introspective, discussion based, visual, and interactive. The focus is on how to accomplish goals (new or existing) more effectively and efficiently through increased communication and partnering skills.

Learn to diagnose the needs of an individual learner and then uses the appropriate leadership style and tools to coach and respond effectively.
