Is there a correlation between versatility and efficiency?

An intriguing study by Kaiser et al (2010) confirms a high correlation between versatility and leader effectiveness. The leaders measured were assigned a score in each of the four opposing leadership styles used in the development tool The Leader Versatility Index (LVI): directive leadership style, supportive leadership style, strategic leadership style and operational leadership style. 

Why is situational and versatile leadership important? How can you as a leader become better at situational and versatile leadership; and what needs and characteristics should you be aware of in your employees to offer them the right level of help, challenge and freedom.

1. The right leadership at the right level


Effective leadership at each level requires different work values, skills and priorities. Moving from one level of leadership to another requires a shift in the leader's approach to work. Failing to make these shifts means there are a number of pitfalls to fall into and a number of new balances to learn.

2. A common language of leadership


The organization must define common requirements and expectations at each management level, for example by formulating a management foundation.

3. A value chain for leadership

The leadership support tools need to be aligned with the common leadership language to ensure strategic and systematic support for leaders and leadership talent.

You'll gain a greater understanding of the balancing act of providing situational and versatile leadership that helps and liberates your employees. In addition, you will have a better sense of which trends and pitfalls to be aware of in relation to your own leadership style and preferences.
