This course is a comprehensive introduction to the topic of leadership. It aims to help students to build the confidence, knowledge and skills to engage in effective leadership in a broad range of contexts. It also provides guidance on self-leadership and actively managing the process of growing as a leader.
The course defines ‘leadership’ not as a position but as a process of influence that delivers direction, alignment of activities towards that direction, and personal commitment to collective success. As such, leadership is potentially relevant to all MBA students who wish to exert influence and drive change.
This course has been written with a sound understanding of the leadership challenges facing typical MBA students. Specifically, the course builds upon a pre-existing leadership course titled ‘Leadership in a Complex Environment’ that was run by the AGSM from 2013 to 2018. The successful delivery of this course provided many opportunities to gather information on the leadership challenges faced by students, what leadership guidelines and tools they needed and which leadership topics particularly resonated with students. This body of knowledge has been used to design this course.
