2. Introduction to the Module
This module provides the opportunity for students to personally explore the relationship between personal change and organisational change/ transformation (de Vries and Balazs, 1999). And personally relate to the leadership and organisational challenges of transformational change in organisations.
The module uses different activities to explore the nature of personal change issues required for successful employee engagement in an organisation's change agenda. In the management and leadership field much is written and discussed about the following seven elements: (1) behaviour, (2) knowledge (3) skills / capability (4) belief systems, (5) values, (6) identity, (7) vision/ purpose. Using various methods, students will be encouraged to make sense of each of these ideas, and the interrelationship between them. This will be set against a real/simulated strategic learning context.
Module participants are actively encouraged to reflect upon their own existential experience and development through dynamic relations with others and performing roles. It is hoped the module will lead to students developing profound personal insights and also achieve personal growth. The module uses different activities to enquire into, reflect upon and diagnose personal, group and organizational leadership and transformation.
Students will be able to diagnose where a/ their team or organisation is weak and design interventions that can help to guide significant change or transformation. The student will be equipped with a clear methodology for guiding his or her own development as an achiever or leader of the future. Assessment is by way of portfolio. 3. Intended Learning Outcomes
