GMBA70-301: Effective Leadership


The importance of effective leadership and communication to encourage innovation and lead change in a modern organisation cannot be overstated. While the need for the possession of technical and professional excellence in the various functional disciplines is unquestioned, the success or failure of an organisation is largely governed by the quality of its leadership. This includes from the CEO through all levels of middle- management to front-line team leaders. The objectives of this course are to provide theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the leaders of today and tomorrow to utilise in becoming more effective communicators and leaders of others with a specific focus on inspiring creativity and innovation and managing change To do so the course draws upon the latest research and literature in these fields, as well as providing a forum for discussion about the activities and behaviours of successful leadership and communication to be practiced and reflected upon in a risk-free setting. The course will seek to expose students to a range of leadership and communication issues, in order to enhance both their theoretical understanding and knowledge of best practice in these fields.
