In this course, students will learn that different theoretical approaches do not always work in practice. Through selecting a number of different leadership challenges, problems and issues, students will use the know-how and know-why of different theoretical constructs to help them solve and recreate quite difficult complex problems within the workplace. They will work either independently or in teams to critically reflect on why different problems and issues cannot be resolved. Students will learn that simply being a leader is not enough in such environments by identifying the limitations of their own leadership style. Here, students are expected to transform their learning by being exposed to different contexts and why context-specific solutions are not always easy. Through a combination of the theory-to-practice nexus, a range of learning experiences will help students to assess their own competencies and learning shortcomings by learning how to be become an adaptive leader.
