Further dates of OD&PL’s leadership development programmes are now available to apply for in 2022. The programmes (Discovering your Leadership, Establishing your Leadership and Leading Transformational Change) have each been designed for colleagues at different stages of their journey, ranging from aspiring and new leaders to those more established in their roles who are responsible for leading a change initiative. Each programme is outlined below:
Discovering your Leadership Programme (Early stages of development)
Discovering your Leadership is designed for aspiring and new leaders. This programme will run over four communities throughout the academic year, and bookings for all communities are now available.
The programme covers the following topics over five sessions: difficult conversations and conflict management, building collaboration, influencing and communication, and transformational change.
Establishing your Leadership (Fine-tuning your approach)
Establishing your Leadership is designed for leaders who are at least 6 months into a leadership role and still feel in transition. The programme is to help leaders make sense of their early experiences, build on their growing understanding of their leadership strengths and start to apply skills in team building, cross-university collaboration and leading through uncertainty.
Leading Transformational Change (Delivering change)
Leading transformational change is designed for leaders who are at least 12 months in the role and are responsible for leading a change initiative. The workshops will help leaders make sense of their transformation challenges currently and ahead, take steps to connect with and influence others on that journey and learn how to successfully embed cultural change.
