20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module will provide an understanding of different approaches to leadership in organisations including transformational, authentic, and transactional leadership. Leadership will be investigated at different organisational levels ranging from leading small teams to shaping the direction of organisations. It will also present multiple views of how change is enacted in manufacturing/engineering organisations and how individual leadership styles affect the impact of these. Students will explore their own leadership styles and have an opportunity to develop their leadership skills through feedback, reflection and practice. The module will emphasise the link between effective leadership, performance and the individual, team and organisation.
