Leadership and Change Management BMA701



Effective leadership of organisations, whether they are professional practices covering only a few staff, multinational corporations, public sector or not-for-profit organisations, is of increasing importance. This unit covers aspects of leadership theory and practice relevant to organisations from an Australian perspective. It examines theoretical aspects from both traditional and critical perspectives. The unit covers the personal aspects of leadership, leaders as relationship builders, and leaders as organisational shapers. Limitations to the influence of leaders will also be covered.
