Sheffield Hallam University was embarking on a programme of major change and believed that in order to be successful as a truly transformational institution with good people at its heart, it was essential to build a strong and effective leadership. It was felt that the University was too transactional in its approach, rather than putting people first.
The University was seeking a leadership learning programme for 40 of its deputy heads, in both academic and professional services roles, across the institution, to include both strategic and operational leadership development.
Designed and delivered by Advance HE, an Appreciative Leadership programme, based on the knowledge that excellent 21st century leadership is appreciative, inclusive and relational, was put in place through a series of workshops, case studies and peer learning, running for nearly 12 months.
