    Leadership is an area of critical interest in today's rapidly changing international business environment. There has seldom been a time when leadership was more challenging or more important. To be a leader, one has to make a difference and facilitate positive changes. Innovating and managing change are crucial to organisational success and leaders play a key role in enabling organisations to sustain a competitive advantage. To this end, leaders inspire and motivate others to achieve worthwhile goals. This unit considers contemporary approaches to leadership, innovation and change from the philosophical perspective that leadership skills can be taught. To this end, the unit examines case studies and relevant theoretical perspectives and encourages critical self-reflection.
