Given the global demographic changes in an ageing worldwide population, this subject focuses on providing a range of skills to support emerging leaders and professionalism in the ageing field. Effective leadership involves an advanced understanding of the global players, of decision-making, of organisational effectiveness and of one’s own strengths and weaknesses. Through a series of current case studies in the ageing field, students will explore the major theories and models of group dynamics, motivation, organisational communication, negotiation and conflict as well as further develop their emotional intelligence for personal and professional development. There could not be a more interesting and important time to actively engage with the international challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.
