The Hersey-Blanchard Model suggests that there is no single leadership style that is better than another. Instead of focusing on workplace factors, the model suggests leaders adjust their styles to the followers and their abilities. Under the model, successful leadership is both task-relevant and relationship-relevant. It is an adaptive, flexible style, whereby leaders are encouraged to consider their followers—individuals or a team—then consider the factors that affect the work environment before choosing how they will lead. This ensures they will meet their goals. Instead, it is flexible, wherein the manager adapts management style to various factors in the workplace including his or her relationship with other employees. That means managers who live by the model must choose the leadership style as it relates to the maturity of followers. For example, if follower maturity is high, the model suggests the leader provide minimal guidance.

Eventually I hope each wards get to a point where they know that as a ward family our job is simply to make sure that each person, member or non member knows that when they enter the house of the Lord, they are loved. Unless you have those same understandings, I'm sad to say the relationship is almost certainly doomed. You should also be willing to date other people. Righteous love does conquer all but in some cases it takes a lot longer than we are willing to wait.
