2. five elements in the CMU Attachment:

Word and PDF versions of each of the five dimensions of the model (each is 3 pages).

These are simplified versions that are like a œchecklist of skills that make up each element.

Look through each of the five and then:

(a) decide which skills are relevant to you (in your emerging leadership role). Why these particular skills? What research literature have you read that helped you choose these skills?

(b) describe how you would develop these skills. Will it be by formal training? Self reflection? Mentoring advice from someone?

(c) design an evaluation scheme that indicates when you’ve reached œadequacy or œcompetence for each of your chosen skills. How can you measure a skill level? What tools exist already to do this?

Following are links to documents describing all the skills that make up each of the five elements in the CMU:
1. Social responsibility

2. Innovation

3. Leading others

4. Self management
