This course provides an opportunity to explore and develop an understanding of your own leadership behaviour. Through seminars, group activities and discussions we investigate how personality, past experience, current situations and culture shape the way each of us behave in a leadership role. Using this information as a starting point we then explore how different leadership theories and approaches can be used as frameworks for developing a deeper understanding of leadership behaviour. You will also have an opportunity to try out a range of practical tools and techniques to assist you in the development of your own approach to leadership.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course will allow students to investigate the underlying theories which underpin the popular views about Leadership. It will examine the trait and situational theories, among others, so that students begin to recognise the basic assumptions which are used by writers in professional journals and quality broadsheets alike. It will allow students to practice some of the skills required in effective leadership in both communication and team-working, and in its tutorial programme will introduce elements of decision-making and game theory. It will be complemented by a professionally run senior management training module, intended to consolidate the essential skills of board-level communication and negotiation skills.
