Every organisation needs great leadership. Dynamic and purposeful leaders can literally change the world. In academia the very best leaders are self-aware, skilful communicators with excellent people skills.
Vitae’s highly acclaimed ‘Leadership in Action’ is a six month programme incorporating an intensive three-day residential course led by a director and team of tutor/ facilitators in which participants experience leadership in action through case studies in small groups in a supportive, reflective, coached environment. Participants explore and develop their leadership potential. The programme focuses on identifying and honing their own leadership styles. The programme has been delivered to a wide variety of participants in cohort groups of researchers at the same career stage, and mixed groups of researchers and professional staff. The programme enables an institution to rapidly build leadership capacity amongst its researcher and others, creating networks of opportunity.
