In the environment of higher education, micropolitics may be the primary tool to achieve change.

      Professor Jacky Lumby of the University of Southampton will explore issues highlighted in her forthcoming LF research report, with particular attention to aspects of leadership practice which she discovered outside the ‘heroic leadership’ narrative. We are delighted to be joined by Erica Whyman, Deputy Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company. The day will offer a rare opportunity to discuss what lies beneath the surface of much leadership and is so vital to its effectiveness.

      The TMP Alumni community is by far the largest LF alumni group, with 650+ members in higher education. This alumni day will allow you to meet up and network with other TMP alumni and extend your learning on 'Hidden Leadership'
