Centre for Strategic Leadership

Organisational unit: Research Theme

Organisation profile

The Centre for Strategic Leadership provides insight into the nature of the challenges involved in dealing with ‘wicked’ or intractable problems, and the ways in which they can be effectively addressed. The Centre focuses on fostering an interdisciplinary understanding of strategic leadership by examining a number of organisational factors. These include, but are not limited to, the ways in which organisations and their key constituents: craft effective visions, develop pathways for future leaders, plan and engage with strategic change initiatives, develop entrepreneurial thinking, formulate effective mechanisms of strategic communication, create mechanisms of innovation, actively sustain and when necessary attempt to regain trust.
