In this course you will look first at why organisations need people to act as leaders, at the links between authority and responsibility, and at the importance of integrity, fairness and consistency.
In Topic 2, you will look at the roles of the leader. How does leading differ from managing? What leadership styles may people use, and how can you select the most suitable leadership style for a particular situation?
