The Graduate Diploma of Leadership is designed to create a deep understanding, at both tacit and explicit levels, of this important organisational role. The course is largely experiential and is aimed at fostering cognitive and behavioural habits which lead to appropriate actions where innovation and influence are required. Course content is underpinned with an exploration of current directions in thinking and research in this very dynamic field of research.
The course embraces a variety of approaches to teaching and learning ranging from didactic (l-Lectures, course notes, formal assessment, etc).) to experiential (intensive residential units) and includes study and reflection on personal challenges, for example, in an outdoor ‘adventure’ program in the Audacious Leadership unit.
