This course critically examines the changing nature of teams within organisations through past and present perspectives on team leadership. The course pays specific attention to leading diverse and cross-functional teams addressing the specific complexities and challenges of these through critical review, activities and case studies. More contemporary issues such as the emergence of virtual teams and shared leadership allows participants to challenge their thinking and anticipate future leadership trends. This course takes an innovate approach to developing and assessing participants' overall team leadership skills through the lens of the "soft" skills that lead to improved collaboration, communication and problem-solving. As these "soft" skills are not as readily apparent or measurable as other more technical skills, participants gain not only skills but also credentials to support their leadership goals. It is envisaged that this approach to the team will augment other leadership approaches offered across the program of study.
