Understanding Leadership

To become a better and more effective leader, it is important that you understand what it entails. Understanding Leadership is an eLearning course that bases its teaching on the work that Professor John Adair has done in this field. The eLearning course will teach you the three main approaches to leadership, which are: the qualities approach; the situational approach, and the functional approach. You will also be shown how to apply these principles of leadership in relation to the Three Circle model, which demonstrates the linked needs of the of the task, the team and the individual.

There are three modules to Understanding Leadership, which are: Leadership Qualities; Situational Leadership; and the Functional Approach. At the end of each module, you will find a short test that has been designed so that you can check your understanding and reinforce your learning. There is another test at the end of the course so you can be sure there are no gaps in your knowledge.

Once you have completed Understanding Leadership, you will have the knowledge and skills to be able to distinguish between the ‘qualities’, ‘situational’ and ‘functional’ approaches to leadership; use the Three Circle as a guiding principle for effective leadership; and identify the three areas of need.
