EDCL600 Catholic Social Teaching for Contemporary Leadership
10 cp Prerequisites 30 cp Foundation Units
This interdisciplinary unit focuses on the implications of Catholic Social Teaching (CST) for the exercise of leadership within Church organisations and agencies. It builds on an understanding of CST, requiring students to rearticulate the fundamental principles of CST in light of “the signs of the times” and in terms of issues in their own organisational contexts, to which they will need to develop personal, informed and considered responses. The unit focuses on leadership as an ethical and relational process of influence and on leaders as moral human beings as well as efficient managers and productive professionals. It offers insights into models and frameworks for leadership as an ethical process within the context of CST.
