15 points

Occurrences

Description

Social leadership - leading with others - is a non-hierarchical event, which mobilizes a group towards a shared objective. In this course, students will explore the dynamics of collaboration and social capital, and their implications for leadership. Theories of group leadership, problem-solving styles and the potential of 'eco-leadership' will be surveyed and critiqued. In this course, students will reflect on and trace their participation as members of various communities: whanau, community, iwi, professional, social and so on. The course draws on the taonga of bicultural Aotearoa to consider the strengths of indigenous leadership and its resonance with and insights for community leadership globally.
