What Is Leadership? (FutureLearn)
Leadership is often misunderstood due to its complex nature. Learn what being a leader means and how you can practice leadership. Investigate leaders and leadership to improve your effectiveness as a leader. In this course, we look to answer the question: ‘What is leadership?’ In the first week we explore two fundamental perspectives on leadership: leader as a person and leadership as a practice. In the second week we examine the difference between leadership and management so you can determine whether you are a leader in a management role, a leader without a management role, or a manager who needs to become a leader.
