• M2 – They can't take total responsibility for the task, however they are willing for it.



3. S3: Supporting

S3: Supporting – this is where basic leadership is shared among the team members about parts of how the task should be done. Here, the leader distributes lesser responsibilies while mostly maintaining relationship trust.

• M3 – They are experienced and ready to do the job but lack confidence for any responsibility.


4. S4: Delegating

S4: Delegating – the leader is only involved in decision-making, whereas the procedure and responsibilities have been passed on to the team. The leader, here, supervises their progress.



They were all vitally involved in reaching the common end which made them seem valued and developed their interpersonal skills.

• M4 – They are experienced at the job, and convinced about their own particular abilities to do it well. They are even confident of assuming responsibilities.
