I have worked in many roles with Higher Education, as a Lecturer, Programme Leader, Subject Manager, Workforce Development Fellow and my current role as Academic Manager.
In today’s dynamic and fast paced business environment, the ability to pursue challenging decisions and gain support from colleagues and team members is central to business success. Prominent leaders achieve great outcomes through setting goals, motivating teams and inspiring co-workers, organising and allocating resources and developing a high-performing team to achieve desired results.
Good leaders look at their own skills and values and are able to set their own development goals. They can communicate, they can connect and they are resilient.
Leading for Results and Change is a developmental learner led course that provides managers with the opportunity to develop the key skills to lead themselves, their team and their organisation through change.
Who is the Leading for Results and Change professional development course for?
This professional development course is suited to managers and team leaders from any sector or industry, with management responsibilities or with responsibility for leading and driving change.
