The Ken Blanchard Companies, a leader in workplace learning, leadership development, and organizational change, will be offering its Situational Leadership II (SLII) model through the GSA’s Schedules Program. The GSA establishes government contracts with commercial firms, which helps federal government offices order services directly from GSA Schedule firms. GSA Schedules create a link between customers and the services they require at predetermined pricing.
Blanchard was awarded the contract under Authorized Federal Supply Schedule 69 by the General Services Administration (GSA), Contract Number: GS-02-F-0154U, Instructor-Led & Web-Based Training.
"This agreement creates a new, yet needed sales relationship between our services and the government sector," said Tom McKee, CEO of Blanchard. "We’ve seen a great deal of demand for our programs from federal and state agencies, and the GSA award provides us with the opportunity to create lasting improvements to the agencies and departments that require our level of leadership training."
SLII is the most comprehensive and up-to-date, yet practical, method in the world for developing people into self-reliant achievers. Using the SLII Model, managers and their direct reports are able to create a partnership. It teaches managers to analyze, diagnose, think, and apply leadership concepts effectively in any situation. By creating a partnership instead of the typical top down “boss-employee” relationship, managers are able to engage and develop their employees faster and more effectively.
