SLII® drives improved productivity, reduced turnover, increased sales and profits, and can deliver to 10x ROI on your training investment.

SLII® has been translated into 15 languages and implemented in 35 different countries. It works at all levels of an organisation and across all industries.

Are you a Directive or Supportive Leader?


Organisations can choose the delivery method for The SLII Experience:  face-to-face, live virtual, or asynchronous. All delivery formats use a four part learning path to ensure your managers master the content and become situational leaders.

      • LAUNCH—Engaging assignments that explain key concepts
      • LEARN—Activities that teach leaders the skills and language to lead situationally
      • PRACTICE—Activities based on personal work challenges that develop new skills
      • MASTER—Strategies that reinforce the learning and make it second nature to set SMART goals, diagnose development level, and use the matching leadership style
