What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

Who you are influences who you are as a leader. This paper explores how to find your unique voice and clarify your own values. You will also work on finding your 'why' (personal purpose statement) while learning how to manage your emotions (Emotional Intelligence) and grow in personal integrity. The paper is structured around 'Five practices of exemplary leadership' - derived from Kouzes and Posner's research on personal-best leadership experiences. You will discover that leadership is everyone's business whether it involves family, education, sport, volunteer teams, or employment.

It is my hope and intention that you'll have productive fun during this class and learn material that will improve your personal life as well as give you practical skills that you can apply in a wide range of leadership contexts. The more we share and enjoy our time together, the more this will happen.

How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

Please note, this is an intensive paper. From day one you will need to engage in the online lessons, with your readings and journal. You will not be able to wait until later in the paper to start work or you will struggle to manage the assessments. All the online lessons and zoom tutorials support your assessments and non-participation in these will make it difficult to complete your assessments successfully. While this paper has a large degree of flexibility it is not entirely flexible.

You should plan to attend the lunchtime zoom tutorials (12noon to 1:30pm) on Monday and Wednesday. You will be required to give interview feedback and do a group presentation in tutorials. Please think carefully about whether you can make a commitment to these tutorials before enrolling in the paper. Tutorials are not recorded.

The first tutorial will be held on Monday 13 November. You will need to have access to a computer/phone with a working camera as 'camera on' is compulsory in our classes. Leaders show up!
