Today more than ever business demands confident leaders. The complexity of contemporary organisations are exacerbated by current volatile business environments. Effective leaders must understand the different aspects that constitute an organisation, and be able to apply different theories and strategies to maximise the output of each organisation.

This course will challenge you as a manager and shape your perspective on a range of organisation issues. Though exploring theories of organisational behaviour and leadership philosophies, this paper will enrich your ideas and the approaches you bring to your work.

The effect of individual traits, values and perceptions are investigated, as well as the importance of effective groups and teams in the workplace. Organisational learning and change and a variety of topics vital for today's leaders such as culture and diversity, employee engagement, and stress and mental health will be explored. Assignments and the final examination are designed to be thought provoking and self-reflective, and provide opportunity for students to renovate their own leadership philosophies.
