How would you describe a strong leader? Are you hungry to learn more about how you can thrive and inspire as a future leader?
A growing number of business commentators, writers and management experts hold the view that today’s organisations are over-managed and under-led. Contemporary managers are often seen to struggle with the leadership aspect of their job.
Join us for a three-part Leadership Forum at UoN’s NeW Space on Tuesday 18 June to find out how you can become a better leader and continue to evolve in your career.
Transformational Leadership – is it still the gold standard in today’s organisations?
We have joined forces with James Hunt, Senior Lecturer in Leadership and Organisational Behaviour at the University of Newcastle. James will share decades of stories, knowledge and insights in leadership, organisational change, organisational behaviour, and strategic HRM.
James will examine the wide range of leadership approaches evident in the modern working arena – from authoritarian, Machiavellian and narcissistic approaches, through to transformational, authentic and servant leadership styles – with a view to establishing a clear understanding of the circumstances in which each of these leadership approaches is likely to thrive and remain preeminent. It has often been suggested in politics on the world stage that nations get the leaders they deserve. Can the same be said of our modern organisations?
Hear from an exclusive panel discussion made up of UoN MBA Candidates who are highly regarded leaders in Newcastle organisations. The floor will be opened up to hyp members and guests to ask the experts questions about their leadership styles and experience in leading local organisations.
Introducing our panel:
James was educated at Sydney University, and at the University of Kent in the UK. He has worked in the university sector in the area of management education for 27 years, commencing at the University of Newcastle in 1990. Since then he has lived and worked in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Newcastle and Sydney, and has presented his research at international management conferences in Europe and the United States.
In the 1990s, James spent time at the Sydney Graduate School of Police Management in Manly where he taught leadership and strategic command management.
James’s primary area of teaching is organisational behaviour, and his primary research focus is on the personality determinants of leadership style. He is the author of more than 50 published journal articles, book chapters and books, the most recent of which is a co-authored book on Leadership published by Cambridge University press in 2018. James is the MBA Program Convenor at the University of Newcastle, a position he has held since 2011, and is regularly involved in the delivery of executive leadership programs in Sydney and the Hunter Region.
