Week 2: What kind of leader could you be?
Welcome to Week 2 of the free badged course Leadership and followership. Last week, you were introduced to the broad concepts of leadership and followership, and some of the wide-ranging research behind these concepts. You reflected on your reasons for choosing the course and started to identify a useful base for developing your understanding and experience further.
This week, you’ll be looking more closely at different leadership theories and styles, and how the context in which you lead can have an impact on your approach. Increasing your awareness of different styles will give you a theoretical base to support your own choices about the way you lead.
Now watch the following video in which Lynne introduces the week.
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
- recognise how context can impact on leadership
- identify a variety of leadership styles/approaches
- assess your own leadership style.
