Businesses, whether private, public or third sector, operate in a world facing a range of urgent global issues. This module examines the fitness of business in both Health and Social Care and other sectors and individuals to tackle such issues, based on the Global Leadership model developed by lecturers at this university.
This model consists of four elements: effective decision making, adoption of a global approach, creation of a new business paradigm and a contemporary mission. The module also considers the related concept of MisLeadership, which looks at how leaders have often failed to achieve the optimum outcomes for those they lead. Leaders predominantly create context and this module will explore the skills required to successfully develop the context in a complex evolving environment.
Assessment will take the form of a group presentation and development of a Wiki on a specific global issue, together with an individual 4,000 word report assessing how successful a specific organisation has been in tackling the issue.
