Synopsis

After making a thorough study of relevant theoretical and research perspectives on the nature and importance of leadership, a study is made of various types and styles of and approaches to leadership. These include charismatic and transformational leadership as well as contingency and situational leadership. The roles, tasks and required attributes of leaders are also explored, as well as the interplay between leadership and a broad range of organisational dynamics. The studying of such themes is contextualised within the shift from the industrial to the knowledge and information era and strategic thinking as an integrating mechanism is therefore also explored. The course content contains a good blend of theory, research and practical perspectives and applications.
