Leadership for Learning ESH708

Launceston

Note:

This unit will only be offered subject to sufficient enrolment numbers

Introduction

Research suggests that leaders play a critical role in the ongoing development of their staff when it comes to improving complex organisations in times of rapid and disruptive change. Leaders in many organisations now hold identified and specific accountabilities for the ongoing development of their staff. This unit examines some of the links between leadership on the one hand, and personal and organisational learning on the other, and looks at the role data can play in developing professional cultures in complex organisations that enable them to focus on ongoing development and improving staff capability through individual, group and organisational learning.
