This unit (SSI6001) investigates concepts of leadership and their association with sport integrity at the individual, practice and organisation levels. Through personal reflection and relevant literature, plus expert presentations and group discussion of case studies, students will develop the awareness of leadership principles and the competency to apply them to decision making, problem solving, and integrity development in the sport business context, both locally and globally. Each module within the unit builds the students' knowledge and understanding of integrity leadership in terms of theoretical and conceptual frameworks, and the research evidence to support them.
