Organisations can be resistant to change and require leaders to motivate affirmative action. Units in the PhD pay particular attention to the traits, skills and behaviours that are indicative of effective and ethical leadership.
Students will undertake a number of self-assessments to facilitate gaining a greater understanding of their own leadership styles. The significance of organisational behaviour inputs of values-driven and vision-based leadership will be discussed, as well as how the tactics of influence and power are used to achieve desired organisational outcomes.
Set with a biblical approach, the PhD in Organisational Leadership analyses the difference between leadership and management, and how leaders are defined by, and define, organisational culture and stakeholder expectations. Students’ research into organisational learning discovering what it means to live within a competitive and changing environment, where organisations must adapt to survive and prosper.
