Leadership (EMBA6002)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit will develop, though experiential methods, a critical appreciation of the application of different perspectives on leadership to business situations. It will achieve this by deconstructing and reconstructing new and existing perspectives of leadership in ways that are of value to the practice of leadership in organisations. Perspectives examined will include military, political, philosophical, dramaturgical, ethical and musical. Students will study specific leadership skills, knowledge and attributes related to different organisational and group situations. These include: creative thinking and acting; critical reasoning; strategic thinking; reflexive listening; identifying and managing power relationships; persuasiveness and; ethical decision making.
