Aug. 18, 2010 - PRLog -- The Defense Financial Accounting Services (DFAS) agency has selected The Ken Blanchard Companies®  for an extensive, multi-year training deployment for its managers and supervisors.  Under this award, DFAS will utilize Blanchard’s flagship Situational Leadership® II, the most widely taught leadership model in the world, and its companion program for frontline supervisors called Situational Frontline Leadership.

Both programs have been developed by leadership guru Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager®, along with the research expertise of several PhDs of organizational behavior.  Both are recognized as standard-bearing leadership development curricula that have helped managers at all levels gain better mastery of how to diagnose the needs of the people they manage, so that they can match their leadership style for the situation and development level of the individual. Both programs are also available in instructor-led virtual classroom formats.

“Thousands of managers and executives in the public and private sectors have experienced the impact of Situational Leadership® II and our approach to bringing out the best in people,” says Sarah Caverhill, Vice President of Blanchard’s Government Solutions.  “Our clients tell us that our model and philosophy of leadership have helped them connect more effectively to the people they lead.”

Under this DFAS contract, many other government agencies can now gain access to Blanchard’s well-known management solutions. Blanchard is also an approved provider on the GSA Advantage program. To see the full GSA schedule of Blanchard offerings, visit
