This Leadership, Communication and Innovation course at the University of Warwick fosters the global skills that employers are looking for and helps you talk about them when applying for jobs. The first part of the course focuses on foundational concepts of culture and explores these through authentic examples of corporate communication and through assessing your individual cultural profile.
You’ll start to develop your understanding of leadership through exploring well-known quantitative approaches to culture involving perceptions and values. In the second part of the course you’ll explore the relationship between communication and culture and its impact on leadership.
Activities (such as assessment centre and other teamwork tasks) will provide the context for carrying out and presenting a mini-research project to investigate how language is used to do leadership. Exploring your own leadership communication style through observation, analysis, and reflection will help you acquire the intercultural skills that are highly valued in graduates today.
This course aims to highlight the crucial role of self awareness, communication and various global skills for leadership. It will familiarise you with the assumptions and expectations that shape our understanding of and practice of leadership, providing an opportunity to develop your critical thinking, problem solving and reflective skills while working within a global context and team.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
- Engage with key concepts related to leadership.
