Aims and objectives

The unit aims to enable students to demonstrate, evaluate and reflect on leadership and innovation in the workforce of the future. The focus of the unit is an in-depth understanding of how the practice of leadership to foster innovation in organisations is shaped by the context and vice versa. Specifically, the unit will discuss the ever-changing context of work (e.g., the fourth industrial revolution, flexible working, workforce transformation) and key approaches, strategies, and practices of innovative leadership (e.g., adaptive leadership, psychological safety, culture of innovation). The unit will equip students to be future-fluent leaders who are adept at leading both others and themselves through complicated, complex, and chaotic organisational challenges.
