This Leadership course has the following goals:
1. To introduce students to the complexity of today’s leadership challenges.
2. To familiarise students with theories and empirical research on leadership.
3. To enable students to handle the diagnosis and analysis of leadership issues and to use this knowledge for the suggestion, comparison and evaluation of problem solutions.
4. To develop students’ reflective awareness with respect to their own values, assumptions, expectations and beliefs regarding leadership and to increase their ability to analyse and transform their own leadership behaviour.
This course will introduce you to the world of leadership in different ways. You will explore the topic through the academic lens by studying past and current theoretical perspectives and empirical research. In addition you will be asked to reflect on the practical implications of theories and research thereby taking into account the complexity of today’s leadership challenges. Finally, a personal development perspective on leadership is introduced by reflective practice regarding your own leadership behaviour.
