While we often speak of ‘born leaders’, leadership is also an art and a practice that can be learned. This subject is designed to help students to develop their leadership skills through the study of well-known leaders, theories of leadership and assessment of and reflection on their own leadership actions. The subject will critically examine concepts and definitions of leadership and how they have changed over time; leadership within and outside formal roles and organisational settings; the exercise of leadership, power, and authority; and the role of values and ethics in leadership. Study, discussion and analysis of leadership theory will be complemented by experiential activities, case studies of real leaders, guest speakers, and opportunities for group discussion and critical self-reflection.
On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
1. A reflective essay of your own leadership style, its strengths and effectiveness, 2,500 words (50%), due during the teaching period.
2. An evaluation of the theory and practice of team leadership, 2,500 words (50%), due at the end of the teaching period.
