This module is designed to prepare students to undertake the role of a HR manager in an international context. To enable you to do this, you will examine the changing nature of organizations in a global context, and the debates around whether HR policy and practice is becoming truly global or whether national and cultural sensibilities prevent this.

This module will develop your self-awareness and understanding of leadership skills and behaviors and how these can motivate and engage employees - including those from different cultural contexts - and secure their commitment in times of both stability and change. This will include learning how to manage inter-personal conflict and how to create cohesive and effective teams for the benefit of both organizations and employees through the use of different strategies such as flexible working.
