Leadership Task Model

Our leadership development program is based on the Leadership Task Model that has been developed based on the leadership research that is done by the lecturers at the Professional School (Desjardins & Baker, 2013).

The Leadership Task Model has been developed to provide reflective leaders with a results-oriented set of leadership behaviors derived from scientific theory and practical economic effectiveness. Simply speaking it answers the question: What do I need to do to be a good leader? Goodness is defined as a combination of socially and culturally defined role expectations regarding positive leadership behaviour, and economic expectations towards the leadership role. That means a modern leader needs to achieve organisational goals and serve the purpose of a commercial enterprise, and be a responsible and positive member of his or her society. Just focusing on the first part leads to socially and economically devastating results like in the first financial crisis in 2008. But a thriving free society is dependent upon a solid, sustainable financial foundation, which is why good business leaders play a crucial part in our societies.
