Reframing Leadership - EMBA6002

Year - 2020

This is one of the two foundation modules in the Executive MBA. This module challenges students to examine their own leadership, to develop their self-awareness: what is their impact on their teams, their organisations and their communities. Students develop their understanding of different leadership perspectives by looking at leadership through various lenses: for example, military, political, philosophical, ethical and musical, and examining their application to different business situations. Students have the opportunity to undertake a 360-degree assessment of their leadership style, to receive coaching and to develop a plan for improving their leadership capabilities. Through various constructed experiences, students develop the ability to self-direct, to work in teams, to engage in strategic thinking and self-reflection, to identify and manage power relationships, to negotiate and influence others, to manage the media and to understand the key elements of ethical decision-making. Students will deliver a group presentation demonstrating their understanding of different leadership perspectives and their application to a current management challenge.
