Details for Personal and Organisation Leadership

Organisations are groups of people working together for a purpose. Despite the pervasiveness of organisations in our modern society, effective group behaviour does not always come naturally. In fact, many goals are never achieved due to poor group dynamics rather than a lack of skills, vision or strategy. This unit will help students to develop an understanding of how an organisation can encourage effective, efficient, social and ethical behaviour; how leadership styles, organisational structure and value systems influence behaviour and how ultimately the group dynamics impact the effectiveness of the organisation in its pursuit of its purpose.
