Talk about an interesting module.
The Fundamentals of Leadership module isn’t just a module about leadership theories. An essential skill of leadership in our time is the ability to work with people to tackle challenges and changes which are not only technical but which require people (including ourselves) to change. The lecturer who teaches the module encourages you to explore multidimensional approaches to critically analyse leaders and leadership. Throughout the module, you will be encouraged to explore self-awareness and develop personal skills and leadership philosophy that help to broaden your understanding of other individuals and social groups at work.
How did the postgraduate degree help you in your career?
The Adelaide MBA has shaped my view of the global business environment as well as my view of my present organisational environment. Organisations and people are extremely complex. The programme has equipped me with the necessary frameworks to analyse challenges in the workplace accurately. In the workplace of the future, challenges are never linear. In fact, they are increasingly interwoven with many other underlying issues.
Modules such as Systems Thinking have equipped me with the necessary skills to accurately diagnose such challenges. The Adelaide MBA has also provided me with a much wider knowledge and a better understanding of my company’s strategy and the reasoning behind those strategies.
