“Leaders and followers” is a fairly new entry-level course and is part of a suite of three electives in management
studies (the other two being organizational processes and critical management studies).
Leadership theory tends to be conceived and expressed as a dichotomy between ‘leader’ and ‘follower’. Other
theories such as those on groups and teams, indicate that leaders are also followers and vice versa. This course seeks
to examine the concept of ‘leader’, ‘follower’ and the space in between them as expressed in management theory.
Students will be exposed to traditional and current leadership theories, be encouraged to generate and implement a
personal ‘leadership plan’ and be tasked to articulate a coherent understanding of what it means to be a leader, a
follower or both in the workplace.
