The overarching goal of this course is to help students understand their own potential to become the leader they would like to be and their own responsibilities in achieving this goal. The course emphasises personal development with the development of leadership capabilities as the vehicle to do so. This course has two primary content areas. A key focus is on making life choices i.e. what work excites learners, as well as understanding one's passions and responsibilities. The emphasis is less about being entitled to be a leader and more about how participants can become leaders that they themselves would like to be. This is a challenging question and gets to the heart of one's major life decisions. The second element supports the first and relates to the development of practical life skills e.g. managing stress, building positivity, mindsets and setting life goals.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify their leadership character strengths (Ask & Remember);
- Recognise personal motivations and how they influence life decisions (Acquire & Understand);
- Apply emotional intelligence to leadership (Appraise & Apply);
- Ascertain how their own mindset influences their leadership (Appraise & Analyse);
- Summarise how personal physiology affects personal leadership (Aggregate & Analyse);
- Critique arguments related to the use of pro-social behaviour in personal leadership and developing others (Apply & Evaluate);
- Evaluate different approaches to dealing with stress and building resilience (Assess & Evaluate); and
- Design an action plan that builds personal leadership capacity (Assess & Create).
- Typical assessments may include, but is not restricted to: in-class exercises, written and oral assignments, quizzes, examinations, group project, oral presentation and defence of project and other assessment deemed appropriate to show attainment of the learning outcomes set for the course . Further details will be made available via the Class Summary in the course Wattle site. (100) [LO 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8]
