Course Content

Week 1: The Leader within You. Discover your purpose.
Everyone can be a leader. People could be born with natural leadership traits. However, good leadership is developed and learnt. Discover and fulfil your purpose.

  • How to Learn and Apply it | MLA vs APA
  • There is a leader in you
  • Self Assessment
  • Purpose Assessment

Week 2: Leadership theories

Week 3: Leaders have a strong vision
To be a leader, you have to have a vision of where you’re headed and how you’ll persuade others to follow you there. In this sense, a vision is simply a clear idea of what the organization in general, and your team in particular, should do. Your vision is what drives your daily action.

Week 4: Leadership is always about influencing others
In a simple sense, leadership is just influence; it’s the ability to inspire others to follow you. In other words, all moral considerations aside, anybody who can attract a group of followers qualifies as an effective leader. That includes the likes of John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill and even Adolf Hitler. All these people were leaders simply because people followed them.

Week 5: Leadership is about setting priorities at multiple levels
Having solid priorities will enable you to determine what’s most important and who you should focus on. It sounds simple enough, but good leaders prioritize on more than one level.

Week 6: Leadership is about having integrity
To have integrity is to adhere to a set of values without fail; these values are your compass, guiding everything you do. To put it differently, people with integrity act based on who they are. But that’s not all it means. Integrity is also about being consistent and doing what you say you’ll do. Being able to follow through like this will inspire people to trust and follow you. Integrity involves honesty and justice. No kingdom or rule can be successful without enforcing justice and fairness.

Week 7: How to Lead an Organization or Business: Understanding Business Functions.
We shall study and discuss how to effectively and efficiently lead various areas of an organization.

Week 8: Leaders must embrace change
Leaders need to be ever ready to change; if they’re not, their inflexibility can negatively affect the entire organization. A leader must be able to adapt.

Week 9: Leaders must first lead themselves
Self-discipline is a key trait of all leaders. If you can’t follow your own lead, don't expect others to follow you?

Week 10: Leaders serve their followers and are ultimately accountable to God
A good leader is a "servant". Meaning they work for the benefit of their followers, putting their personal interest secondary to the collective interest. They support their followers to achieve their dreams and enhance welfare. Furthermore, note that God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil - Ecclesiastes 12:14. Leadership appears to have an edge on earth, and "supreme leaders" or "dictators" appear like no one can question them. However, they need to realize they will be required to account for every decision they made. With great powers comes great responsibility.

The Module: Developing a leader within has been vital to me in understanding that everyone can be a leader, and anyone can develop a leader too. The module emphasised a critical process that involves nurturing and enhancing the skills, qualities, and potential of individuals to take on leadership roles effectively. After finishing the module, I honed my integrity and personality to be a better leader. Faith Leads University really prepares students for bigger leadership roles.
