Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (Virtual) Forum - 221108

"If The Shoe Fits" by Cheryl Bennett, PMO Director at NewWave Technologies

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.

Presentation Details

Leaders often pride themselves in the fact that they “treat all their team members the same”. From an anti-bias, inclusive perspective, it is important for leaders to treat all their team members fairly and consistently, but not the same. Situational Leadership theory suggests that leaders should adjust their leadership styles to accommodate the needs of individual team members.

Situational leadership theory, first proposed in the 1970s by Ken Blanchard and Paul Hersey, recommends that leaders adjust the amount of direction and support they provide team members according to each member’s capabilities and confidence levels. Each team member is an individual with individual needs. This speaker will explain the 4 development levels and corresponding leadership styles proposed by Situational Leadership theory.

By the end of this event, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand what situational leadership theory is
  • Understand the 4 development levels and how to identify them
  • Understand the corresponding leadership styles
  • Apply the appropriate leadership style to the appropriate situation
