Leadership - BUSI96037


Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
                                                                                                                - Dwight D. Eisenhower 

Management consists of a set of universal skills that are well understood and can be learned. One of the most important of these skills is leadership. Leadership consists of how each one of us makes a unique difference to the challenges we face with people and projects. It is not about wasting our energy trying to be something we are not. Instead, it is finding new and better ways of ‘being ourselves’ through enhanced insight and skill. Therefore, our focus in this leadership module will be to help you become more aware of your personality traits through diagnosis (questionnaire assessment exercises), your strengths and weaknesses as a leader through insight (introspection and reflection on one’s traits, habits, and behaviours) and to build on this knowledge to improve your leadership practice through self-development (plans to learn and change to more effectively tackle future challenges).

Each day of the module will focus on a number of themes and will involve a blend of activities. We start the module studying personal aspects of leadership and as the module progresses we will be paying attention to more organization-based aspects, finishing off with sessions for personal action planning.
