Responsible Leadership

Module description

Responsible leadership is a human imperative. Anyone who currently leads or manages organisations, people or movements knows that there are many complex, interconnected challenges that demand investment, collaboration, action and change on a global scale. These challenges affect the survival of businesses and the wellbeing of their workforces and the natural world. Within our organisations, economies and communities we need a model of leadership that embraces the interrelated nature of these challenges and envisions systemic solutions. This module will question the mission and purpose of our organisations, and explore whether long-term commitment to planet, people and profit can unlock sustainable growth. Together we will critically analyse the interrelated nature of the problems faced by our global societies and examine how leaders can act as a catalyst to shape a more sustainable and more equitable future.
