Is Situational Leadership Innate in Good Managers?

Before I discovered that someone had put a name to this technique, I thought it was one of the things in the kit bag of a good manager. It just makes such basic common sense that I'd be surprised if every successful manager hasn't used it to a greater or lesser degree during their career - perhaps like me without knowing there was a label for it.

Situational Leadership and Good Managers

You're right. However, I believe situational leadership works only when leaders understand both themselves and their followers. If a leader doesn't know their people very well, they can easily place them in the wrong level and apply the wrong type of leadership. That's why I think study of Maslow and Herzberg are important to success of situational leadership.
Oh, and by the way, there are way too many leaders out there who don't see a need for situational leadership. Most of them see themselves as quite successful. The others may not be as convinced.
