How do we turn the theory of business into the practice of business in order to lead our organizations into the future? By now you should have a strong understanding of leadership in a theoretical context. You should also understand the role of the leader and various leadership strategies available to you. The real world of business, however, is not about theory—it is about practice.
One critical question to consider is: how do we turn the theory of business into the practice of business in order to lead our organizations into the future? One of the most important challenges for current and future business leaders involves finding the thinking space and courage to keep the long view in mind for their organizations. Leaders are increasingly in the public eye, with numerous stakeholder groups enforcing their entitlements. This challenge becomes increasingly important and difficult as business practitioners rise through the ranks of their organizations and take on more general management and strategic leadership roles.
You will explore challenges and opportunities to improve leadership practice and analyse the advantages of effective leadership practice. You will also evaluate how leaders manage teams and how teams shape the requirements for effective leadership.
