The Situational Leadership Approach to Social Media
I should probably go add lots of colors, and a flowing bell curve through the middle of the thing. It lacks the shiny nature of all the other situational leadership graphics on the web. I bet this is where we and XKCD differ. He's put in the effort to really make this thing shine and have an overload of information with the directing, coaching, supporting, and delegation flow.
Maybe I'll have to approach it in an iterative manner and upgrade it for another post, including using an image format that doesn't fuzz. Something to look forward to: The Situational Leadership Approach to Social Media vX.xxx.
"The fundamental underpinning of the situational leadership theory is that there is no single "best" style of leadership. Effective leadership is task-relevant, and the most successful leaders are those who adapt their leadership style to the maturity ("the capacity to set high but attainable goals, willingness and ability to take responsibility for the task, and relevant education and/or experience of an individual or a group for the task") of the individual or group they are attempting to lead or influence. Effective leadership varies, not only with the person or group that is being influenced, but it also depends on the task, job or function that needs to be accomplished."
