The purpose of this course is to explore the idea of Future Leadership as something which involves more than thinking, behaviour, techniques and position, but who we are, our identity or fundamental ethical state.

In this context, students will explore various theoretical dimensions of leadership whilst simultaneously learning how they might shape and manage their own sense of leadership into the future.The course will be of interest to students who seek an understanding of leadership as understood within present organisational paradigms as well as those who seek new ideas of Future leadership.Students should only choose this module if they are interested in exploring developmental and academic ideas in various topics in the literature on leadership.

A combination of readings, multi-media (music, film, art) presentations , and class discussion will be the pedagogical tools used in this course.
