JLBC CADET CORPS Leadership Skills & Theories

S1: Directing. The leader gives direction to the followers to perform the task. Communication is one-way.

S2: Coaching. The leader directs the followers to perform the task, but communication is two-way. The leader also provides motivational support to engage the followers in the process.

S3: Supporting. Decision-making about accomplishing the task is shared between the leader and followers. The leader is less directive but motivates the followers.

S4: Delegating. The leader is involved but allows the followers to determine how to accomplish the task and gives them responsibility. Motivation from the leader is less critical – the followers can motivate themselves.

Directive behavior is the extent to which a leader:

• Sets goals and clarifies expectations

• Tells and shows an individual what to do, when, and how to do it

• Closely supervises, monitors, and evaluates performance

When being directive, you provide structure, organize, teach, supervise, and evaluate. Supportive behavior is the extent to which a leader:

• Engages in more two-way communication

• Listens and provides support and encouragement

• Involves the other person in decision making

• Encourages and facilitates self-reliant problem solving
