About

The Adapt your leadership style course offered by Coursera in partnership with Macquarie University is part of the Leading: Human Resource Management and Leadership Specialization.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Adapt your leadership style course is offered by Coursera in partnership with Macquarie University.

Why are organisational misbehaviours such as cynicism, apathy, bullying and disengagement increasingly prevalent in the workplace? 

This course examines these tensions and how transformational, authentic and inclusive leadership styles offer an alternative to the more autocratic, job-centred and controlling leadership styles of the past. You’ll learn how the digital revolution, along with an increased focus on projects and teamwork, has dramatically altered the perception of leadership in a way that now demands all organisational members take on some form of self-leadership. 

And you’ll learn how this change is causing tensions between traditional leaders and the contemporary practices vital to maintain agility in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace. This learning will be complemented by structured activities such as video lectures, quizzes, discussion prompts and written assessments.

What You Will Learn

  • Critically evaluate the similarities and differences between traditional and contemporary theories of leadership
  • Examine the complexities and challenges of day-to-day organisational life might require agile shifts between different leadership styles
  • Analyse how post-industrial forms of participative and self-organising leadership might enable or disable effective cross-functional teamwork
