The learning leader

Unit Code: LEO5107

Duration: 6 weeks

Contact Hours: 20-24 hours of study per week

Credit Points: 6


It can be argued that the two primary reasons leaders fail are because of failed relationships, or because they fail to continually learn. This unit explores how we understand ourselves as leaders, build psychological safety, motivation and resilience in the face of persistent challenges.

You will examine compassionate leadership and how to cultivate it (especially in the face of tension or conflict). You will learn strategies to enhance compassion, frame stressors, improve your own wellbeing and create more caring and compassionate workplaces.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate an understanding of contemporary approaches to leadership with a focus on compassion, care of self and others, and psychological safety in the workplace
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify and adapt one’s approach to leadership through self-reflection and self-direction in one’s ongoing development as a learning leader
  • Demonstrate a capacity to engage with multiple layers of ethical, legal, and practical considerations in relation to the global challenges in which leaders must make decisions and take direction.
