MGMT20131 - Leadership and Integrity

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Leadership and integrity extensively explores issues about how leadership practices facilitate organisational effectiveness. Understanding, analysing and applying the nature of leadership are important for organisations to pursue sustainable development in the changing environment. In this unit you will examine a variety of traditional and more contemporary approaches to leadership, their effect on followers and when and how they should be applied. You will also consider leadership in a cross-cultural context and how different leadership styles are more accepted, or less tolerated, in different cultures. This unit addresses specific aspects of the emotional intelligence model that will allow you to identify the key competencies required of leaders to effectively influence followers with a high degree of integrity. Using reflective practice as the basis for personal development, you will be required to research, reflect on and acquire the conceptual knowledge, behavioural skills and attitudinal components of specific leadership competencies including: power and influence, self-confidence, and visibility and credibility.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Students Feedback
Feedback
Improve Moodle Site navigation
Recommendation
The Unit coordinator and facilitator will construct a new Moodle site rather than use roll over to insure no duplication occurs and new assessment details will be created included simplified rubrics and assessment criteria.
Action Taken
This was done with a fresh Moodle template being used. and the development of simplified rubrics.
Source: Student feedback
Feedback
More resources, particularly diagnostic tools and articles
Recommendation
Diagnostics tools were available on Moodle however navigation appears to be the issue re locating them and downloading. Reading resources can be addressed via compulsory texts, particularly those related to leadership competencies of Daniel Goleman.
Action Taken
A separate Diagnostic Tools folder was created for stduenst to access however most only used those provided by faculty and did not actively engage in research to find alternative tools that would have enhanced self awaremess.
