Our new Senior Academic Leadership Programme provides a unique opportunity for senior academic leaders to discover a range of creative methods for finding new solutions and approaches; increase collaborative engagement to lead transformation in teaching and learning, and research; and explore and refine a clear and resilient sense of their own leadership identity.
Who is Senior Academic Leadership Programme for?
The programme is designed for Deans of Education and Research, Directors of Faculty, Research and Academic units such as Schools and Faculties, Professors of research teams and Directors of Teaching and Learning.
How is the programme delivered?
Taking place over a three-day period, The Senior Academic Leaders programme consists of:
• 360-degree diagnostic to identify personal strengths and development goals
• Intensive three-day residential module
• Expert input around creative thinking from facilitators and guest presenters
• Peer learning and co-coaching
What are the programme outcomes?
The programme will develop participant’s ability to construct and communicate creative narratives that bring fresh life and meaning to strategic challenges and provide the basis for collective commitment and bridging (internal and external) communities. It will further develop their personal vision for leadership; linking values, identity and purpose and exploring both individual and academic motivation and the hidden energies that drive individual and organisational performance.
Participants will be able to bring back into the institution a range of fresh and exciting ideas regarding the nature of inclusive, compassionate and ethical leadership that they can model for others. They will bring new approaches to change, engagement and a positive mind-set to release latent innovation potential for their teams – of particular value for an increasingly time-poor but outcomes focused environment. This will be evidenced through a capacity for transformative leadership through collaboration, creativity and commitment.
