Leaders in Global Development

This course is part of the Leadership in Global Development MicroMasters program. In order to get the most out of this course, we recommend that you have experience working in the development sector or a strong interest in this area. We also recommend that you complete the other three courses that make up the Leadership in Global Development MicroMasters program: The Science and Practice of Sustainable Development, Adaptive Leadership in Development, and Critical Development Perspectives. Are you working in the development sector and looking to take the next step in your career and take on a leadership role? This business and management course is an introduction to key leadership theories and concepts that you will need to be an effective leader and manager. You will learn how leadership is different from management. You will learn practical skills needed to build a shared vision, and lead across boundaries. You will learn to recognise your own leadership style, and the leadership styles of others. You will learn the different types of power, and tools for gaining legitimacy in your development work. Upon course completion, you will be prepared to take on leadership roles in development and work effectively across geographical, cultural, organizational and disciplinary boundaries. You will also develop a personalized leadership plan throughout the course, which will help you continue your leadership journey after you complete the MOOC.
