Course Brief

This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and analytical capabilities needed to practice
leadership in modern organisations. It explores the nature of leadership in terms of how individuals effectively build
agreement to shared goals and courses of action and facilitate organisational movement toward the achievement of
these goals. In particular, we highlight theory and research that accounts for how leaders acquire and exercise social
influence in a manner that contributes to their credibility and the motivation of their followers. The emphasis of the
course will be on application of theory, comparing and contrasting ideas, self-reflection, and self-discovery of one’s own leadership potential and strengths.
