criticism because it can help them improve in the future.

By learning more leadership skills and strategies on how to lead a team to be successful, it will help me be a better manager, and it can provide me with opportunities for advancement in the company.

Provide a brief description of each person and explain why you chose her or him as being particularly impactful. 2. Under each name, identify a total of three to five (3-5) skills, traits, qualities, and/or approaches that they each demonstrated that had a positive impact on you. 3. Review the list and determine whether the actions were predominantly management-oriented in nature or leadership- oriented (i.e., identify with an ‘M’ or ‘L’). Here, think back to the leader-manager discussion in unit 1. 4. Focus on those that you identified as predominantly Leadership attributes (‘L’). 5. Beside each of your noted points of significance, identify whether those that positively impacted you were more predominantly related to his or her: (a) ‘Head’ (e.g., knowledge, etc.); (b) ‘Heart’ (e.g., relationship with you, respectfulness, ability to empower or motivate, etc.); or (c) ‘Hands’ (e.g., action, approach, behaviour, etc.). 6.Determine whether your total list is more predominantly categorized by Head, Heart, or Hands – or a combination of these attributes.
