This unit provides health and human service professionals with the opportunity to critically analyse a range of contemporary leadership frameworks and theories. There is a focus on the exploration and practical application of theories and techniques to improve understanding of leading self and engagement of others in order to achieve results, drive innovation and shape systems.

Participants will be exposed to a broad range of leadership theories and frameworks with reference to the Australian LEADS Framework (Leading Self, Engaging Others, Achieving Results. Driving for Innovation and Shaping Systems).

Students are expected to apply these frameworks and draw on relevant empirical and theoretical work as well as reflecting on their own workplace, lived experience and belief systems.
