Course Overview

This module aims to enable students to gain an understanding of culture and its effect on the individual, the group, and organisation, and to develop leadership skills and behaviours that support the design, development, and maintenance of high-performance teams.

Students can learn more about organisational culture frameworks and theoretical approaches to defining and developing effective teams. They can practise self-reflection to increase their awareness about the relationship between culture and leadership, brainstorm learning opportunities in developing effective teams, and reflect on how the knowledge gained can be applied to their professional context and organisational settings.
