This unit is designed for students undertaking studies in leadership. It provides an opportunity for students to explore the nexus between their knowledge and understanding of leadership, their personal ambitions, work/life integration, and experiences. Students will reflect on the purpose of leadership, their leadership roles, and examine leadership in relation to their own ethics, values, ambitions, and professional and personal lives. The format of the unit will follow the conventions of spiritual retreats and include activities such as guided and self reflection, group discussion, and journal writing, and will utilise philosophy, literature, music, and film to facilitate the exploration of leadership and help students put their learning into perspective.
