Reflection on the course

Navami summarises what we have covered on this course.
I hope you have enjoyed this course into International Leadership. You now know what leadership is and how leadership theory has evolved over time. You have also developed an appreciation for the relationship between power and leadership by exploring the key concepts of leadership. I hope you have enjoyed the chance to discuss and investigate the differences between leaders and managers and assess your own leadership qualities through leadership questionnaires. But this introductory course is only the beginning of the International Leadership module on Coventry University’s online BA in International Business. So, if you’d like to know more join us in the next short course to go further and examine what makes an effective leader.

Congratulations on completing this short course on the Evolution of Management and Leadership Theory. We hope you’ve enjoyed the experience. Watch the video where Navami summarises what we’ve looked at over the past two weeks.
