My first impressions of leadership taken from these resources was that it involves taking charge and leading a team or organization. A leader needs to be able to motivate and inspire their team to pursue their goals and objectives. I identified a few potential pitfalls such as not having communication or delegation skills, not being able to resolve conflict, or not being able to foster collaboration between team members.

Both Beverley Malone and the videos demonstrated a wealth of knowledge and skills. These included strategic thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, decision- making, commitment to excellence, and interpersonal skills. Additionally, they demonstrated an understanding of the importance of creating a culture of safety and professional integrity.

Their personal and professional attributes have had a great influence and impact on practice. Both Beverley Malone and the videos showed the importance of networking and engaging with others when developing programs and initiatives. They exemplified how having the correct attitude, coupled with the right set of skills, can create an environment where nurses can thrive and provide quality care to those in need.
