Leadership Training: Putting the One Minute Manager to Work in the Schools.
King, Richard L.
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education selected material produced by Ken Blanchard, co-author of "The One Minute Manager," as the basis for a series of 4-day workshops on situational leadership for school personnel. Among the concepts brought to bear in situational leadership training are that (1) concern for people and concern for production are variable dimensions of four general leadership styles, (2) leadership must be suited to the situation, (3) the nature of the situation is determined by the development level of the "workers" or "followers," and (4) increasing the development level of workers makes them less dependent on the leader and less demanding of the leader's time. To provide a richer mix of experience among workshop participants, school districts are encouraged to send business and government leaders from the community to the training sessions along with school personnel. An abstract of the introductory situational leadership workshop presentation and a page of notes and diagrams prepared by one workshop participant are appended. (PGD)
