This module critically analyses individual and collective leadership responsibility, with a particular emphasis on business leadership and its role in shaping a sustainable future. The aim of the module is to develop an appreciation for the emerging theories on leadership and alternative views on the role and nature of leadership. Some of the topics covered within this module include: An introduction to the philosophy of business with a view to a fundamental re-evaluation of the dominant neoliberal world view and the concomitant economisation of individual and collective life; The ethical roles and responsibilities of modern corporations and their leaders; responsible leadership qualities.
An explicit transdisciplinary approach will be followed but the module will be anchored in a framework for reflective and critical practice.
