The classic film Twelve O'Clock High provides the rich and powerful means for learners to leverage the Situational Leadership Model. The film portrays events that actually occurred and thus provide a rich backdrop from which the critical competencies of building teams, directing change and leading situationally, are vividly portrayed.

Plot Summary:

In this story of the early days of daylight bombing raids over Germany, General Frank Savage must take command of a "hard luck" bomber group. Much of the story deals with his struggle to whip his group into a diciplined fighting unit in spite of heavy losses, and withering attacks by German fighters over thier targets. Actual combat footage is used in this tense war drama.

Strategic Outcomes

- Provides a clear picture of how to turn vision into execution

- A "how to" of achieving short-term goals while gaining long-term commitment
- Demonstrates the performance benefits of meeting individual needs vs. wants
- Engages senior leaders to embrace follower-driven leadership
- Emotionally charged learning experience to engage participants

In a study done by Inc. Magazine, top leaders were asked to name films that most influenced their management styles, the winner was Twelve O'Clock High!
