Blanchard's SLII

Blanchard's SLII is the most comprehensive and practical method of effectively managing and developing people and businesses in the world.  Today, business' needs change rapidly therefore an agile, visionary and nimble leadership team is required. SLII provides leaders with the model and the tools for creating open communication and developing self-reliance in those they manage.  It is designed to increase the frequency and quality of conversations about performance and development. As a result, employee's competence is developed, their commitment is gained and talented individuals are retained. Leaders will learn the effective theory on Day 1 and will then put it into practice on Day 2.
