20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: Teams are ever present in organisations. An understanding of the factors that contribute to effective team work combined with knowledge of the design and management of successful teams are crucial for managers and leaders. This module links leadership and team work through providing an overview of the most important theories, cutting-edge research and 'hot topics' in both fields. This knowledge along with a basic understanding of leader development is consequently applied to practice in developing students into effective and valuable team players and leaders through practical exercises and self-reflection.
