Leadership Essentials

Mon 13 Mar, Mon 27 Mar 2023


Leadership Essentials is a key programme suitable for those with responsibilities for others’ work, behaviour and development, which aims to help managers refresh and build their skills and experience in this area. As well as clarifying key responsibilities, it focuses on critical areas that some can find more difficult, such as giving and receiving feedback effectively and handling challenging conversations. The programme incorporates tutor input; opportunities for discussion, reflection and sharing of good practice with others with similar responsibilities. It also includes curated e-learning resources to support managers with their ongoing learning and development.

Participants are required to attend both half day sessions.

Before attending, please take some time to review the short Leadership Essentials: Management Responsibilities Films of other University colleagues talking about their role as a manager.

Target audience
  • University staff with professional (line management) responsibility for one or more other members of staff, this includes first line managers, team leads, supervisors, new PIs and researchers with supervisory responsibilities for others
  • Further details regarding PPD's eligibility criteria

Number of sessions: 2
