This unit provides leaders and aspiring leaders in Catholic Organisations with an introduction to the theological foundations for the exercise of their role. Participants explore the nature and distinctive features of Catholic culture, and examine a Catholic understanding of the human condition – in particular the existential and spiritual aspects of health, aged care, education and social services with regard to caring for whole person.
Integrating mission into business with and through people.
The Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Catholic Culture has been developed in collaboration with industry partners and is designed for leaders of Catholic health, aged care, educational and social service organisations. The course aims to build personal leadership capabilities to enable you to:
