15 women changing our world

Cogin – the first female director of the world-class AGSM and Deputy Dean of the UNSW Business School – recently attracted global media attention with her far-reaching study into the elusive work-life balance.

First, online learning can address the need to connect theory to practice, with courses grounded in video-based examples from real classrooms ( Hennessy & Deaney, 2009). Table 1.

BusinessThink: On a lovely warm day, many workers go outside during their lunch hour and relax in the sunshine and talk about leadership within their organisation. And quite often, they are no longer complimentary about the boss. David Grant: Well, it may be a perceived crisis but you could argue that leadership has been in crisis for some time.
