    . Discuss Hersey and Blanchard’s life-cycle or situational approach to leadership.


    A) The model suggests there are two major styles (task and relationship) and a leader’s style should be varied according to the level of maturity exhibited by subordinates.

    Task style: organizing and defining subordinate roles; explaining tasks in terms of when, where, and how subordinates should do them.

    Relationship style: open communication and psychological and emotion support in leader’s personal relationships with subordinates.

    Subordinate maturity is defined by degree of achievement motivation, willingness to take on responsibility, amount of education/experience.

    Four basic leader styles in this approach are:

    telling (hgh-task/low relationship)

    selling (high-task/high-relationship)

    participating ((low-task/high/relationship)

    delegating (low task/low-relationship)
