Not available in 2019UWA (Perth)Face to face
This unit covers key leadership and management skills such as clarifying personal vision, coaching, goal setting, conflict management, stress management, emotional intelligence and communication skills. Exercises and assignments are used to develop personal and interpersonal effectiveness. Students receive a 360-degree assessment of their skills on major leadership dimensions from five work colleagues. This is used to establish individual development needs and provide a measure of improvement throughout the unit. Major competency models of leadership and management are covered so that students become familiar with the research and practice of leadership development.
Students are able to (1) diagnose, synthesise and critically evaluate evidence based leadership knowledge in the context of contemporary leadership practices and case studies; (2) assess, critically evaluate and reflect on personal competencies, values and styles related to leadership and develop action plans to improve their leadership and career potential; (3) identify and prescribe strategies and practices to effectively lead organisational change; (4) understand how leaders make effective decisions including the roles of ethics, values and emotions in the decision making process; (5) understand and develop a global mindset to effectively lead others across cultures; and (6) understand and develop effective coaching competencies.
Assessment information is provided in the unit outline.
