HOD-823 Leadership Theories and Methods

4 semester credits
This course critically explores theories and models of leadership and how these are reflected in the world and in students’ own leadership orientations and styles. Key topics include changing definitions and models of leadership, leadership as an individual vs a relational attribute, the contingent nature of leadership (relating to context, culture, and social identity), and leadership development. Students will compare traditional leadership models with more contemporary approaches that have evolved to address leadership in networked, virtual, social action, and global organizations. The course will balance theoretical, research, and practice aspects to help students deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills of leadership as a positive influence on individuals, organizations and communities.
