This minicourse will assist with the ongoing development of leaders – particularly new leaders – by introducing a range of theories that can be used in a practical manner in a range of work situations. Many, if not all, leaders will recognise situations that they have experienced where the theories discussed in this course explain not only what has happened, but why it has happened. By understanding this relationship between theory and practice, leaders will better understand various facets of leadership and their application. Most importantly, you should understand by the end of this minicourse that leadership behaviour can be learnt.
This minicourse presents you with frameworks, theories and skills to support you in this transition, as you move from an existing team into a management position. You will also gain an understanding of the behaviours that are common in leaders.
Please be advised that this minicourse is made up of four parts please see MGT8038 for the full course specification.
