Advanced executive leadership and management programme
The advanced executive leadership and management programme (AELMP) comprises enhanced sector specific learning and postgraduate management papers delivered by New Zealand's tertiary leader in management research, Waikato Management School at The University of Waikato. The AELMP is available to people who have completed the ELMP.
The AELMP programme incorporates the Let's get real framework and builds on the learning, networks, self reflection and academic experience of the ELMP. The programme uses a mixture of academic and practical tasks to inspire sustainable leadership outcomes. On completion of the AELMP, programme participants will graduate with a Postgraduate Certificate in Management Studies from the University of Waikato.
Blueprint leadership challenge
During this challenge, course participants will be asked to step outside of their comfort zone and respond to a series of tasks, built upon theories of Inspirational Leadership. Learners will be required to develop and deliver responses to scenarios, based on everyday situations, with a twist!
Think MasterChef, think The Apprentice! Using reality television-style group work, learners will be pitted against each other to find the top group of Inspirational Leaders. Are you up for the challenge?
EXLD 559 Action research project
This is an applied research paper requiring the participant to apply learnt knowledge and skills to a problem within an organisation. Participants will apply a range of practitioner-based research strategies, using a workplace-based project. Led by Dr Colleen Rigby from The University of Waikato, this paper will allow learners to:
- explore and analyse current workplace-based practices and apply basic research theories to the development of a project
- invest in a project, in collaboration with their workplace, which will offer practical advice and recommendations for future growth of their organisation
- both submit and present the findings of the research project to their organisational project sponsor/team, and a panel of experts.
This paper has 15 credits.
EXEC 510 Growing entrepreneurial leaders
This paper integrates three aspects: personal growth, reflective leadership and organisational outcomes. It builds on research on emotional intelligence (EI) and leadership to:
- develop self-awareness
- positively influence others
- create forward-looking teams and organisations
- explore the relevance of ideas from entrepreneurship and executive learning
- identify the skillsets required for outstanding leaders
- show how to customise them into personal repertoires for informed and effective action
- test the applicability of course material through a short workplace project designed to embed the learning into everyday practices.
The programme will be delivered as one stream from June to December 2013, in Wellington. The programme is run over a maximum of eight days, including three blocks of face-to face study in Wellington and 1-2 days attendance at a full day in your own region.
Projects, assignments, research and reflection are to be completed in your own time.
