This module will examine how views of leadership have changed since the Industrial Revolution, from mechanistic, behavioural models of behaviour to modern leadership frameworks which facilitate change in ever dynamic national, international and cultural climates. Emphasis will be on how theoretical models relate to real life scenarios, how leaders are selected and how leadership is assessed. Content combines conceptual knowledge, behavioural guidelines and other information demonstrated by examples and case studies, experiential exercises and feedback on skill utilisation and performance. Lectures and seminars will combine a variety of educational approaches, from interactive discussions to action learning, with a focus on students' own individual leadership development.
