Leadership is increasingly seen to be a key factor affecting the performance of contemporary organisations and is an important area of study in the fields of management and organisational behaviour. While leadership principles are often associated with the work of senior management, they also have potential application to all members of organisations, including people at the beginning of their career. This unit explores conventional and alternative perspectives on leadership and provides a range of leadership case studies. Further, this unit of study challenges students to engage in self-reflection on their own leadership values, strengths and areas for development. Finally, this unit helps students to develop their skills in perspective-taking, problem-solving, decision-making and having influence, and to effectively leverage these skills at the outset of their career.
