Leadership Starts From Within ESM760



To be eligible to enrol in this unit students will have completed professional development through the Professional Learning Institute.


The aim of this unit is for leaders to examine the complexity of leadership in a period of rapid and disruptive change, and to develop their self-understanding of personal leadership behaviours. The unit analyses the nexus between management and leadership in the workplace and how an evidenced-based knowledge of self can contribute to building leadership capacity. A 360 degree Feedback Leadership Profile contributes to the examination of personal leadership and provides a pathway for exploring leadership growth through an action research project undertaken in the workplace. The unit is relevant to leaders who are committed to supporting on-going learning for themselves, their professional colleagues and their organisations.
