LEADERSHIP

MGT3LWM

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Effective leadership is not only valued at an organisational/managerial level, but also to enhance your influence in daily life. This subject examines the key theories and the current trends in responsible leadership across a range of work-place contexts. You will apply these theories to critically analyse contemporary Australian leaders and where possible, to apply these theories to your own work contexts. You will also reflect on your own leadership strengths and development needs in working collaboratively with others to achieve results. The subject requires a combination of undertaking work online, as well as attending highly interactive workshops where you will have the opportunity to examine, discuss and solve real-world leadership problems.
