  • Overview

    Today's workforce continues to diversify, and the tasks to be accomplished have become more complex. They say that leaders are born with the ability to enthuse. A good leader knows how to motivate people, get the best out of them, and be proud of what they can achieve. Students in this unit evaluate a series of alternative perspectives of leadership, including contemporary collaborative models. After a careful analysis of these perspectives, students can develop a personal model of leadership adaptable to any workplace. The unit utilises a range of assessment criteria including analysis of case studies, informal presentations and group activities. An understanding of key leadership criteria in management will enable students to be capable of professional and personal judgement and initiative.
