2018/19 leadership and management programmes available for application

July 2nd, 2018

You can now apply or register interest for the 2018/19 Leadership and Management Academy (LMA) programmes.

Are you interested in enhancing your leadership and management practice? Do you want more flexibility in your leadership style? Whether you are leading large teams across multiple sites, a small team or project, or even if you are thinking of applying for a leadership position in the future, there’s something for you in the LMA.

With a mix of workshops, coaching, 360° analysis, and the application of learning in practice through a work based project, you’ll be learning and working with people from your peer group from across the University.

The first programmes open for application are:

  • Leadership for High Performing Teams, Departments and Research Groups. Learn to deal more effectively with the challenges and dilemmas of being a senior leader at the University of Nottingham, review and reflect on your own leadership style and learn how to shape it, and explore and enhance aspects of leadership that are important for you and our University. In broad terms, this programme will be right for you if you are in a senior role that might have cross-University connections, although is more likely to have breadth across a Faculty or Department. Your role is likely to be at L6 or L7. This programme is designed for staff from all job families at these levels. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 1 August 2018.
  • Leadership for High Performing Teams. Explore aspects of leadership that are important to your role, and really understand your leadership style. Workshops will focus on four specific leadership themes: change leader, organised/effective leader, motivated leader and future-proof leader. We’ll look at the leadership skills needed to motivate and engage your staff, to deal with conflict, to support them through change, and to handle difficult conversations. Bringing these leadership skills together, we’ll enable you to consider the application of these skills in an organisational context. This programme is ideal if you’re leading teams at an operational level – whether it’s in an academic, research, or professional services context. It’s likely that LHPT will be the right programme for you if you’re already leading – whether that’s a team of people, or a project, or a programme – and in doing so you’re engaging with a wide range of stakeholders. Your role is likely to be at L4, L5 or L6, and staff from all job families at these levels are invited to apply. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 1 August 2018.

What is the likely time commitment for these courses. There is no indication here are they part day or whole day courses?
