This module combines theoretical perspectives and practical activities to explore the concepts and practices behind effective management and leadership in the Higher Education context.

Challenging preconceptions and misconceptions, the class will provide participants with frameworks and models to help them construct or reinforce a personal approach to management and leadership that works for them and meets the needs of their role. Topics such as professional identity, transactional and transformational leadership, putting leadership into practice, and understanding management and leadership within disciplinary domains will be addressed while aiding participants in finding answers to questions such as: what kind of a leader am I? How can I be a more effective manager or leader? What do I need to do to achieve my leadership goals?

An engaging mix of traditional and non-traditional teaching methods is used throughout the class, and participants will have opportunities to use diagnostic and psychometric tools.
