The heart of the Mars Surface Rover activity is found in the leadership roles. These roles were specifically designed to demonstrate the typical leadership approaches. The specific behaviors were derived from the six sets of skills, including Communication, Thinking, Administration, Influence, Interpersonal, and Change Management.

Thinking Skills
Leaders anticipate the organization’s needs by watching market demands and trends. The thinking leader possesses analytical and intuitive problem-solving skills. Synthesizing a variety of information helps the leader identify trends that will affect those that he/she leads.
