The aim of this course is to familiarise students with the domain and scope of practice of leadership and motivation in organisations. Classic and contemporary theories and research are outlined and discussed, highlighting their contributions and limitations in occupational settings. The leadership topics covered span trait and behavioural theories, values-based leadership frameworks, and their implications to organisational dynamics and success. Motivation topics include needs- and process-based theories, and how insights from each of these theories contribute to increasing and sustaining motivation at work.
