Leadership is a key factor affecting the performance of all organisations and is of increasing importance in today’s dynamic business world. While the task of leading is generally associated with senior management, all employees have the potential to exercise leadership, through their influence and inspiration of others. Effective leadership requires advanced knowledge of theory and skills in application, so leaders have the capability to develop and implement strategies that will support the organisation and its people to achieve their objectives. This unit explores conventional and alternative perspectives on leadership, and the practice of leadership in a range of organisational contexts. Through the use of experiential activities and a blended learning approach, students will develop their leadership potential and start to find their unique leadership voice.
