Week 2 - Discussion 1 Alvis Corporation [WLO: 1] [CLO:4] Guided Response: respond to 3 peers The Hersey-Blanchard model is a situational theory that is influenced by the follower’s task readiness level to determine the course of action the leader should yield.

After all the facts were told to the followers, they decided not to participate in the higher production standards, the leader left the decision solely to the followers. The delegating style is the leader stepping aside and letting the followers make the decision without any leadership involvement (Daft, 2018).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
