JLBC Materials and Preparation:
Handout 3.1: What Makes a Great Leader?
Make one copy of Facilitator Tool 3. A: Cut-Out Page Leadership Styles, cut out the leadership styles and fold them in half before the activity
Handout 3.2: Leadership Styles
Objectives – By the end of the action, participants will be able to:
1. Show some pictures of famous leaders and let the participants identify their significant contributions to their community or society? Let them also recognize the qualities/character that made them good leaders. You may also ask the participants to give examples of leaders they think are inspiring (people from their communities or other people they may know.)
(Expect responses on qualities such as enthusiasm, courage, self-control, to make decisions, clear vision, planner, a belief in themselves and others, dedication, pleasant, empathetic and understanding, generous, responsible, cooperative, and passionate)
Stress the point that each one of us can be a leader. A leader does not need to be famous or a celebrity. Each one of us can be a leader in a given situation.
2. Ask learners to read about what makes a great leader in Handout 3.1: What Makes a Great Leader? in their Participant’s Handbook. Explain that a good leader has essential characteristics, values, or attributes. Ask a few learners to give examples of 1-2 people they know with those characteristics.
3. Explain that not all leaders have the same style. A different style of leadership may be needed depending on the situation.
