As a management concept, leadership is unrivalled in its ability to spark passionate debate. Although the topic has been popular for many years, a new interpretation emerges every decade or so. Leadership is a key organizational concept, but no-one can agree on a definition. The beliefs and assumptions that underlie the notion of leadership vary between cultures, generations and even organizations.
This course offers you the chance to dig deeper in order to clarify and contextualize what it means to be a leader. Its purpose is not to provide a magical formula for producing leaders. Rather, it aims to teach participants about the diverse understandings of leadership, improve their self-awareness and help them find a leadership style that works for them.
The program is built around case studies, practical activities, group discussions and visits from inspirational leaders.
Forge your own leadership style through reflection, introspection and action.
Learn about the diversity of expectations around leadership.
Discover how our definition of leadership has changed and will change over time.
