Subject Aim:

The aim of Applied Leadership is to explore the importance of personal values and beliefs as foundations for effective leadership. Another aim is to highlight the advantages of efficient group dynamics and communication in an experiential and real setting. The conference structure provides a range of learning experiences, some real (group performances) and simulations (outdoor activities). These learning experiences are reviewed with links drawn from real life, industry situations and upcoming events at ICMS.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Analyse the personal qualities that give rise to inspiring and effective leadership.
  2. Analyse personal character development for effective leadership through a group situation.
  3. Apply the principles of leadership in simulated situations to make the comparison between different leadership styles.
  4. Apply leadership principles to successfully undertake a group community project that enables participants to take differing leadership roles.
  5. Analyse and evaluate how different leadership styles affect individual and group performances through the experiences of the unit.
  6. Using a self-reflection technique, analyse the characteristics of effective leadership and how individuals and teams affect the output of effective leadership in a given situation.
