This unit helps students to develop the knowledge and skills required to be an effective leader. It presents several models of leadership and discusses how they relate to performance. Students learn skills in relation to self-awareness, emotional intelligence, self-leadership and other leadership competencies. Students discover and reflect on their own leadership competencies and focus on the development of specific skill areas throughout the unit. The unit involves learning and application of theories, self-assessment, experiential learning and development of plans and actions to improve personal and interpersonal skills in a number of areas.
Students are able to (1) explain and apply several leadership theories and perspectives; (2) investigate and prescribe change management strategies for organisations; (3) recognise their personal values, emotional intelligence and leadership style, and develop an action plan to improve their leadership potential; (4) demonstrate an understanding of their communication competence as a leader and know how to improve their communication capability; and (5) analyse their own leadership development needs.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) tutorial participation; (2) essay; and (3) examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
