Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject introduces students to some of the major issues that dominate today's thinking about organisational leadership. It provides students an opportunity to explore and critique the need for leaders in education and other organisations to implement suitable leadership strategies and approaches that will effectively respond to the diverse management and leadership needs of today's complex and culturally diverse organisations. Participants examine the context of the changing demographics of today's organisation and the eminence of globalisation, along with the need for paradigmatic-shift in conventional leadership mindsets and practices towards diversity and inclusion. Relevant theories of diversity and inclusion are investigated including: theory of equity and attribution, as they relate to ethnicity, race, religion, gender, sexuality and age. Students will demonstrate a fact-based understanding of existing case studies and models of best leadership practices, and a critical awareness of relevant factors influencing leadership effectiveness.
