Delivery Mode
This paper will be offered in a FLEXI format where students can participate on-campus in Hamilton or online via Zoom synchronously.

Purpose

This paper is designed to identify and develop participants' leadership potential; to facilitate the process of ongoing personal and leadership development and to lead organisations effectively, particularly through change. It guides leaders and aspiring leaders through research and experiential practices on the role of leaders and their influence in today's changing and complex environments.

Leadership is not a sole activity, so additionally we focus on the way leaders and followers interact, notions of team and shared leadership, and explore assumptions, beliefs, and values embedded and shaped in these practices.

The purpose of the paper is to:

  • Recognize and apply effective leadership strengths, attributes and skills, and develop a personalized leadership development plan.
  • Understand, apply and critique changes in organisations and the role of leadership.
  • Understand, apply and reflect on research and current perspectives aimed at enhancing leadership in organisations.
  • Analyse, critique and apply shared leadership concepts and constraints.
  • Experience virtual teams, virtual leadership, and change.
