SL Model Dissonances
Maurice Hogarth, Consultant, United Kingdom, Premium Member
1. There are several variations on the style label referents.
2. "Is the person able to perform the task?" "Yes". So they have the ability. On what basis do we "then look at ability..."?
3. The dissonances are too distracting.
How do "Directing", S1 and "Telling", S2, differ?
Do the situations (S1-S4) relate to the same or different times-conditions, e.g. why would (S2) people be demotivated and unwilling to do the task at the time they are learning it?
How does Telling (S2) relate to countering demotivation or equate to Coaching?
If the model is about “readiness” for a style of management rather than adaptability for matching a style to particular competence-commitment levels aren't we simply playing with jargon to create a distinction?
4. Have realised that at S2 the individual is in training (by the Leader via Telling/ Coaching). It is at S3 that the individual is fully trained (i.e. TWS) and at S4 when they are at the EWS.
