Description The learning content and process enables participants to develop the more advanced ‘agile’ leadership now required to create, implement and review change in their own and other’s managerial-professional work, as necessary, in a complex, often unpredictable and interconnected world. Each of the 12 leadership agility practices’ mini-lectures and real world illustrations are accompanied by a comprehensive set of academic readings, which build from the core text book written by the module tutor. Learners are expected to read and apply as much of this material as possible, to perform to the best of their ability in specified assignments.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • understand the mechanisms which underpin outstanding leader-follower relationships
  • understand the nature, operational detail and impact of 12, research-evidence based, leadership agility practices
  • understand the impact of leadership purpose and personal values on leadership practice and team-organisational-community outcomes
  • explore the key principles of sustainable leadership and enterprise during constant change
  • develop an personal development action plan for enhancing contextualised leadership agility practice within an organisational development context, and demonstrate how to track progress towards achieving mastery for themselves and their organisation
