What is the course about?

GDBU1057 aims to provide:

  1. An introduction to leadership theory and to the principles of effective leadership;
  2. Experience in applying these in evaluating specific leadership behaviours, and
  3. An opportunity to develop an action plan for self- and career-development.

The course will involve a combination of lectures, directed reading, analysis and discussion of case studies, and practical exercises and role plays. The approach will be highly participative and student centred, and students will be strongly encouraged to reflect on their own experience as leaders and as followers.

Examples will be drawn from the business, government and not for profit sectors.
