Impact of goals and culture on leadership roles- There are various ranges of cultures that have an impact on the organizations. They are related to innovation, output-oriented, team-oriented as well people-oriented. All these have different impacts on the organization. For example- innovation leads to an increase in the creativity and production of the firm's input. Similarly, a people-oriented culture helps in motivating employees to give their best. Output-oriented culture is related to productivity and results in increasing the productivity of Four Pillar Hotel. Four pillars have various cultural values such as they are committed to the teams. That is the members and workers of the chosen hospitality sector follow a large teamwork by contributing through small groups. This helps the leader of the four pillar hotel to perform its role effectively (Goetsch and Davis, 2014). There are various roles that are to be performed by the leader such as controlling organizational performances and motivating its employees. It also leads to evaluation, innovation, development, and controlling tasks for achieving the ultimate goal of customer satisfaction. Teamwork and good employee relations impact leadership as it helps in achieving the vision, and mission of the organization. Good team culture and employee-employer relationships help in smooth functioning and make it easier for leaders to perform their respective activities (Chhokar and et.al., 2013).

Impact of objectives, cultures, and values on management roles- There are various organizational objectives that places an impact on management roles. They are financial, customer-focused, and product-focused. For example, financial objective leads to impact leadership roles by increasing pressure on leaders to accomplish the financial objectives of the firm. Also, consumer focus is one of the most important objectives that is required to be fulfilled to achieve maximum customer satisfaction. A manager working in the hospitality sector is required to perform various functions such as managing business and applying good business practices that are relevant to profitability. He is also required to perform industry-specific training relating to risk management as well as statutory compliance (Mc Cleary and et.al., 2013). Accountancy and administration are also fundamental roles of the management in Four Pillar Hotel. A manager is also a person who cannot perform all these functions by himself he requires the support of his team members and subordinates to achieve its goals. The culture followed in the Four Pillar Hotel motivates the employees to work in teams (Four Pillars Hotels, 2015). Also, they are trained well to perform individually if required in any situation.

To welcome their customers, they have adopted various methods to make them comfortable. Always takes care of their customers to meet their requirements. The culture followed by the Four Pillar Hotel is a very enthusiastic and energetic process that helps its all members to achieve the goals of the team. With the help of this teamwork, a manager is not required to focus on employees' tasks and control them (Hallinger and Wang, 2015). It can look at commerce and other sections of the Hotel to ensure effective workings. When the tasks are being done collectively then it is easier to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization for leaders and its managers.

1.2 Evaluation of leadership and management skills to achieve goals

Following are the leadership skills required to achieve chosen organizational goals:

Communication- A leader is required to have effective communication skills. He is required to communicate its subordinates about the goals and objectives of the chosen hospitality firm (Yen and Teng, 2013). For that, the leader is required to have good verbal as well as written communication skills to make workers understand their work. Communication skills play an important role at times of giving directions to subordinates to a leader. Effective communication helps in maintaining coordination and discipline in the organization.

Organization- This is another effective skill that leaders should possess. It helps leaders in planning strategies, and objectives for their team, to give quality output. Following goals and plans helps the team to complete their task effectively and efficiently (Hon and Chan, 2013). A situation in which organizational skill is required to be there in the leader is at the time of making business decisions as well as for making future objectives for the company.

Confidence- This is an important skill that is required to be a leader while working in a team. In this, the leader should have confidence in himself as well as in his team's members (The 10 Effective Qualities of a Team Leader, 2016). It helps in motivating subordinates and teams and leads to self-confidence. It further helps in achieving the task on time. If the leader of subordinates is confident about his work then it leads to enthusiasm and an energetic environment in the firm. It leads to increase in the efficiency and effectiveness of the working of employees of the firm.

Fair & Integrity- Team leaders should treat their team members equally and fairly. Any partiality will lead to conflicts among the teams. Leaders should maintain integrity within the team and should open up with each member of the organization or the team (Jaiswal and Dhar, 2016). The situation where fair and integrity skill is required by the leader is at the time of assigning jobs to subordinates of different departments. This skill will help it in making fair decisions with regard to employees who are working under him.

Delegation & Facilitator- The team leader should know how to represent her leadership. It helps the team members to focus on improving functions and performances. Team leaders should be effective facilitators that is they must understand their employees and team members about the organizational goals and objectives. The situation under which delegation and facilitator skill is required by a leader is at the time of performance appraisal and evaluation. This skill helps the leader in a fair and accurate evaluation of the performance.

The following are the management skills required to achieve organizational goals and objectives:

Self-motivation- The manager of Four Pillar Hotel is required to be self-motivated and integrated. If the manager is motivated employees will also get motivated and will work enthusiastically (Pereira-Moliner and et.al., 2012). The situation in which self self-motivated leader plays an important role is at their time of nearer deadlines as well as at times of pressure and burden over employees.

Knowledgeable- The manager should have knowledge regarding hospitality industries, about various competitive organizations. It is also required to know basic money management, business hierarchies, and legal complications in the business (Wu and et.al., 2013). At the time of completing legal formalities if the manager is a knowledgeable person. Then it helps guide its employees in completing formalities. Also, this skill helps in giving competition to rivals in the markets.

Good Communication skills- The manager of Four Pillar Hotel is required to have good written, and oral communication skills. Along with that manager should also be a good listener and should be able to represent the organization (Kirkman and et.al., 2016). The situations in which strong communication skills of a leader help the company is at the time of direction and it is required to learn various complaints of employees and customers during the business year.

Relationship Qualities- The manager is required to have the following characteristics a good mediator, a team player, respect, and value others (Quintana, Park, and Cabrera, 2015). The situations in which a good relational leader plays an important role is at the time of making personal relations with employees. Along with that, it also helps in motivating employees to give their best in their particular jobs.

The objectives were to improve my communication, influence, and integrity as well as my negotiation skills. For developing such skills I have made plans to further work on my skills. While developing the plant I came to know the requirements of leadership and management skills. For achieving those requirements the plan was made and implemented. On reassessing the plan I came to know that I have improved my influence and integrity skills. But still want some developments on the part of communication skills as well as negotiation skills.
