Leaders: Their Role and Impact on Business
21 January 2019

Examine different leadership theories and the key traits of a leader. Analyse the impact leaders have on an organisation.

Understand what makes a leader and the effects of leadership on a workplace
Defining leadership can be difficult. Leadership is a multidimensional construct that many theorists have dedicated their time to defining.

On this course, you will explore some of these theories - learning what leadership is and how good and bad leadership can affect a business and its employees. You will consider different leadership models to help clarify the universal components of leadership and how these components differ to management.

What topics will you cover?
  • Definition of leadership
  • Understanding of the ambiguity in its definition
  • Trait, behavioural, and contingency/situational models of leadership (e.g. Blake and Moulton 1964)
  • Differentiate the roles and effects of managers versus leaders
  • Introduce the effect of leaders on individual and organisational performance
  • Good versus bad leadership’s similarities and differences
What will you achieve?
  • Describe the definition of leadership and identify its components
  • Assess trait, behavioural and contingency/situational leadership theories
