There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



Organisations operate in complex contexts characterized by multiple stakeholder needs, interests and values. Organisational leaders have to navigate various dilemmas, the nature of which increasingly impacts our organisations, societies and the planet at large. This subject builds upon relevant ethical and philosophical foundations, examples from past and contemporary organisational contexts characterized by dilemmas as well as students’ personal experiences to assist them to discover ways to cultivate their capability to address organisational dilemmas. Students reflect on how leaders' and managers' decisions and actions impact stakeholders' in a number of contexts and cultivate a personal commitment toward earning and sustaining public trust in consideration of others in their business judgements and decision-making. The subject develops their capability to guide others to meet collective responsibility when facing dilemmas.
