Building a Model for Leadership Leadership is the amount of task behavior (direction) and relationship behavior (support) that you give employees as their manager. Direction is when you tell employees what to do, how to do it, when to do it, where to do it, and whom else to do it with. Support is when you engage in two-way communications, actively listen to your employees, provide feedback and encouragement, and use recognition to reinforce the employee’s efforts. You should use high amounts of task behavior when the employee lacks the ability to do the job, but you should reduce the amount of direction as the employee learns what to do.
