This programme is about how to navigate this constantly shifting higher education environment when there are no certain answers. Libraries, finance and procurement, information and digital, and student services are critical to the success of universities in the emerging marketplace and their managers must be able to respond to changing demands whilst keeping staff engaged and systems going. Participants on this programme are given the structure, inspiration and insight to do this in their own organisations by looking at their own personal leadership development.
During the programme, participants will explore and question their leadership style by using the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and also their management and leadership role with experienced professionals. They will also tackle a problem-solving challenge in a dynamic interactive simulation based on the kind of real-life scenarios participants encounter and receive individual feedback on their approach.
New and established managers working in libraries, finance and procurement, information and digital, and student services area of HEIs who seek to respond effectively to new challenges, keep themselves ahead of the game and keep other people engaged. The programme will be particularly valuable to colleagues with the ambition and potential to move into assistant director roles or similar in the future, and who wish to explore in detail the challenge of ‘stepping up to leadership’.
Completion of Leading Across Professional Boundaries is seen as a development stepping stone to our acclaimed Future Leaders Programme - it is from this leadership programme that many alumni have gone onto senior roles.
