Leadership is fundamental to organisational success and effectiveness. True leaders are stewards of the purpose of their organisation. Ambitious leadership means helping to shape the future rather than just reacting to it.
This module seeks to recognise the importance of leadership in governance focusing on the chairperson including the contribution of other members of governing bodies.
Next, we consider the key role of the board in setting the strategic direction by assimilating directives from government or other key stakeholders with the needs of their local population or clients. We also explore the various styles of board members.
