This essay discusses the Blanchard and Fiedler leadership model, which suggests that there is no single best style of leadership and that the leader should adapt his or her style to match the situation. The leader must be able to assess the situation and then choose the appropriate style of leadership. The three main factors that determine which style of leadership is best suited for a particular situation are task structure, leader-member relations, and position power.
