The BA (Hons) in Professional Development (Business) is one of only a handful of programmes across the country that draws on the latest theories, methods and practices to develop your leadership style. Progressive leaders use ideas from the complexity sciences to develop more fluid and innovative businesses approaches. If you want to be one of these people, this course if for you. We honour what it means to be human by providing a space to learn from your emotional, intuitive and logical experiences of work. Many organisations focus only on the rational/logical, leaving no space for emotion, or intuition. This can lead to poor health, unmotivated staff, and poorer quality. We also explore the success of 'next stage' organisations to unveil the human potential at work. Leadership is a practice, and as such, can be learnt and developed over time. This program is designed to introduce you to the latest tools and techniques to make an impact now, and develop an effective approach to your continued professional development. In particular, this programme will:

  • Help you explore a range of perspectives on the nature of leadership and organisations;
  • Help you reflect on your current views of leadership and organisations, and how these relate to your own lived experience; and
  • Encourage you to slow down and attend to their lived experience of being in organisations long enough for new ways of making sense of your experience to emerge.
