I was studying and trying to solve LE PMA in last 4 days. It’s taught and quite challenging assignment. I found several interesting issue when reading about situational leadership approach. It seems very comprehensive approach that leaders should be adaptive to different situation in order to achieve shared goals. Thus, the ability to shift from supportive to directive becomes most important thing for this kind of leader. However, in my opinion it’s quite difficult for leader to always changing time to time and tries to suit to every people within organization. Imagine if a leader that employ more than 100,000 employees across the world. Should she/he adjust to every employee characteristic? Or which employee characters should she/he should approach? Perhaps, if a leader manage in small numbers of followers, let say 10-20 people, this approach could be very good to be implemented. Thus I found some interesting that this approach has received acknowledgement from scholars which result criticism, does this approach applicable for workplace environment?
