About this Unit
This unit is designed for high-achieving students enrolled in Bachelor of Creative Leadership or Advanced degrees. It enables students to develop high-level critical thinking skills that are essential for life-long career success. Students engage with key theoretical frameworks and concepts in critical and systems thinking using interdisciplinary approaches to enable them to think and act outside the silos of their disciplines. Throughout the unit, students are challenged to consider how they think as opposed to how they think they think (biases and heuristics). A clear understanding of the necessity of systems thinking approaches in leadership paradigms equips students to be the leaders of tomorrow.
