Developing Leadership

For those new to leading or wanting to enhance their leadership practice, we have several options that give you the opportunity to reflect on and find solutions for challenges in all areas of leadership, or prepare for that next step.

It is when an institution is faced by unprecedented challenge that the importance – and impact - of leadership at all levels can become most apparent. By investing in development for current and future leaders of your teams and departments you are ensuring that your organisation has the capabilities, flexibility and resilience needed to deliver your current and future goals.

Our portfolio will support you in developing leadership capability throughout your institution

Our wealth of experience, the quality of our delivery and distinctiveness is threaded through our portfolio of services in developing new and existing leaders. Using diverse and immersive experiential learning techniques our portfolio provides its participants with the opportunity.

Leading Virtual and Disconnected Teams

Providing connected leadership in a disconnected world

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has added to the complexity of true leadership. Campus closures, social lockdown and enforced working from home has brought about disruption, displacement and disconnection: the disruption of work patterns and activities, the displacement of teams and departments, and the disconnection of colleague relationships.

Leading Virtual and Disconnected Teams has been designed in response to these challenging times and has been developed to support colleagues to take stock of their team or departmental leadership and review their approach to influencing in a virtual world.

It aims to create more gender parity in senior leadership within higher education

Preparing for Senior Strategic Leadership

Explore and develop your leadership identity

The development of an effective strategic leader in the volatile and challenging HE sector is rooted in their ability to connect with the institution’s purpose. It is through this connection that an effective leader can manage organisational change, develop emotional intelligence and personal resilience, handle sensitive issues and proactively engage in strategic response to sector issues or provocation.
