Increasingly, leaders in the field of social change are finding that traditional approaches are insufficient to meet social need in a highly-connected world.
The generators of need are now complex and interrelated. Leaders are finding themselves in a new world of peer-based collaboration and interdependency.
You'll work as collaborators and partners, leading highly autonomous teams that develop emergent responses to complex environments.
- This innovative degree offers both face–to-face and blended learning experiences.
- Delivered using a mixture of workshops, online seminars, group discussions, including a regular learning circle co-consulting group, and learning journey visits and immersions.
- The highly participative nature of workshops and groups enables students to experience collaborative leadership and peer learning.
The context for leading social change is rapidly changing. The world of leadership is moving from a rational, deterministic approach, with expertise at the top and market-driven solutions, to a collaborative and networked future, where knowledge is distrusted and progress requires a relational approach.
In this emerging context, leaders focus on the collective rather than the individual, using evidence to inform decision-making, securing collective responsibility against a shared purpose, and taking an asset-based approach to emergent change. These leaders work as collaborators and partners, leading highly autonomous accountable teams that develop emergent responses to complex environments.
