Modules & assessment

  • Cross Cultural Leadership
    This module offers a critical evaluation of leadership theories by placing the evolution of American leadership theory within its historical and ideological context - examining the vulgarisation of social psychology by management writers and the difficulties inherent in their conceptualisation of power. Recent leadership theories are examined, notably transformational theory, and the reaction against charismatic leadership. An examination of cross cultural factors in power relations within organisations, drawing on comparative studies of managerial styles with particular reference to: socialisation and legitimisation processes, bases of obedience and independence, and cultural variations in predispositions to obedience. Insights into leadership as an element in decision making, problem solving and change management with specific reference to: experimenting and developing practical leadership skills in different contexts, coping with conflict, power and organisational politics, the morality of leadership: the ethical dimension in the exercise of power.

Assessment

ARUL employs assignments, presentations and examinations to measure student progress, along with an innovative case study major project or dissertation.

The Major Project involves detailed research, analysis and reporting of a healthcare or social care related organisational issues.
