MGT367 Leadership Issues (8)

Leadership is no longer just the responsibility of those in official leadership positions. Leader-like behaviour of individuals at all levels is now an expectation in many organisations. This subject will engage students in the types of leadership issues they will face in the workplace. These issues include a diverse and equitable workplace, leading and managing change, ethical practices, social responsibility and organisational learning. These key issues, critical in today's context of constant change will be explored to enable students to develop their own thinking and leadership capabilities through synthesis and critical reflection in an area that they have chosen to explore in depth.
