Examines three interrelated concepts central to contemporary discourse about effective governance. From a focus on 'the great men of history' and 'captains of industry' to behavioural, transactional, transformational and problem-solving approaches, the unit traces the development of leadership studies in a range of contexts including the organisation, governmental and international. Inherently a political activity, leadership involves the exercise of influence and power and is often a critical factor in the resolution of disputes. The nature of influence and power is discussed, their forms identified and dispute resolution strategies (including negotiation, cooptation, mediation and arbitration) explored.
