Very informative try visualizing each and every leadership I've encountered and making them fall in each category mentioned in the lecture . Finding out who's doing right and not as a leader and and a manager. But still I can say depending on staffing and situation.

I have enjoyed listening to this lecture. It has certainly reinforced the different styles of leadership and management. I can now recognise those that a true leaders and those that manage - whether they be good or bad. There are also those that are a mic of both. I have also become more aware why managers have to lead, have to plan their time, so as to organise their schedule so as to control the situations around them. The hope is that they know what they are about, are focused & have the vision to plan ahead. I like to hope that our leaders are honest, have integrity, can inspire others & look ahead to plan for possible change, then to implement that change. Be able to effectively communicate this to others is important.
