Social leadership - leading with others - explores the dynamics of collaboration and social change and their implications for leadership. Theories of group leadership, problem-solving styles and the potential of different types of leadership will be analysed and critiqued. In this course, students will reflect on and trace their participation as members of various communities: whanau, community, iwi, professional, social and so on. The course draws on the taonga of bicultural Aotearoa to consider the strengths of indigenous leadership and its resonance with and insights for community leadership globally
We will also look at different forms of community engagement and organizing for social justice and how to best account for social and political factors that impact individual and community well-being and access to justice.
