UNIT DESCRIPTION The main aim of this unit is to investigate how current thinking on leadership influences an organisation’s planning for meeting current and future leadership requirements. Learners will gain an insight into current thinking on leadership from an organisational perspective.

This unit will help learners understand the impact of management and leadership styles on strategic decisions in differing situations through examining the competences and styles of successful leaders. Applying management and leadership theories and models to specific situations will enable learners to assess their impact on organisational strategy.
