BUT...Is Leading Self-Organisation like Conducting an Orchestra?

Deborah Hartmann Preuss posted on Oct 29, 2009 :

"...The fact is that not all teams are alike, and perhaps they should not be led in the same way. The Hershey-Blanchard "Situational Leadership" model was referenced several times at the recent ScrumGathering in Munich. Joseph Railin, in Creating Leaderful Organizations calls it a "Followership Model" because it suggests that the key to helping team members growing into leadership lies in matching one's leadership style to the team's level of readiness to follow."
Note that "able" indicates ability to do work tasks both intellectually (training) and emotionally (personal maturity).
"...an Agile leader may need a toolkit of different approaches."
  • A "Relationship Oriented" leadership refers to the emphasis required on the relationship between leader and followers.
  • A "Task Oriented" leadership refers to the effort that the leader needs to put into readying followers to do the actual tasks.

Other names have also been used for these leadership styles:

Telling Directing
Selling Coaching
Participating Joining, Supporting
Delegating Trusting
  • More...
