TITLE Leadership for the 21st Century

LEVEL D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium

ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

DEPARTMENT Doctoral School

DESCRIPTION The aim of this introductory workshop is to engage participants personally and collectively with the notion of leadership and what it means to be a leader in today’s world. It does so by exploring a number of areas, namely the self, positive leadership, sustainability and context. The focus is on developing a model that helps us look at the importance behind character, presence and connections, and the impact these have on us. It will help participants engage and critically reflect on their own existing leadership and professional relationships and the impact these have on their performance and that of others. This introductory workshop is aimed at setting the scene for other workshops where the importance behind leadership traits, one’s personal philosophy and style of leadership, and leadership skills among others, will be explored.


By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:

- understand themselves more deeply through engagement with a model of leadership that is more inclusive;
- critique rapport with others and situations in the different institutions that we form part of;
- relate to the dynamic relationship between leadership, people and context.
