A leader should provide his subordinate what they cannot provide for themselves.

For an employee with Low Competence or High Commitment, the leader should provide direction and the subordinate provides his own eagerness and support.
For an employee with Some Competence or Low Commitment, the leader should provide direction along with motivation and encouragement.
For an employee with Moderate-High Competence or Variable Commitment, the leader should provide support and encouragement because that particular team member is self-directive, but his assurance is low on one aspect.
For an employee with High Competence or High Commitment, the leader should delegate the responsibility for task achievement to the team member.
Note: Competency deals with Knowledge and Training Skills. Commitment deals with Self Confidence and Self Motivation.

Leadership does not mean “Different types of guidance for different employees”, it also means that “Different types of instructions for the same employees, based on the job”.
