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.
Please note that the Summer school offering of this unit is restricted to students enrolled in the DECYP Leadership program.
