Week 3: What makes a good leader?
Welcome to Week 3 of the free badged course Leadership and followership. Last week, you looked at different leadership theories and styles, and how the context in which you lead can have an impact on how you lead.
This week, with that theoretical awareness underpinning your thinking, you’ll be focusing in more detail on the skills that employers look for in successful leaders. You’ll consider leadership frameworks from major employers across different sectors, and reflect on your own leadership skills using a skills audit.
Watch the following video in which Lynne introduces the week.
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
- recognise the key skills and behaviours required for effective leadership
- review your own experience and capability in using these skills
- identify opportunities to build your skills and experience
- use a leadership journal to reflect on your experience.
