Learn the secret of great leadership practice — join an LMA programme

June 5th, 2019

The world has changed. Leadership isn’t about the role you hold or having ‘leader’ or ‘manager’ in your job title, it’s about the way you act and react in everyday situations with those around you. In the complex and uncertain times in which we live, developing great leadership practice is more important than it’s ever been. But what’s the secret to making this happen?

The Leadership and Management Academy (LMA) is here to help answer that question, with its new suite of development programmes.

If you’re looking to enhance your leadership practice, build your confidence, and develop a great network of like-minded colleagues, the LMA’s development programmes are now open for applications. Completely refreshed for 2019/20 these programmes provide focussed development for all leaders and managers, at all levels.

The new offer includes four core leadership programmes – Executive Leadership, Senior Leadership, Operational Leadership and Stepping into Leadership – all of which are open for application now.

You can find out more and apply here: LMA Development Programmes

If you want to focus in-depth on specific areas of your leadership practice, such as digital leadership or taking a more coaching based approach to your leadership practice, a range of specialist programmes will be on offer shortly. You can apply for the specialist programmes in addition to core leadership programmes.

If bite-sized learning suits you, you can pick and choose subjects that you’re interested in with the Spotlight On… sessions. These two hour events held every month cover a range of practical topics and are led by experts from around the University.

The LMA also continues to offer coaching and mentoring opportunities for all staff, and will also shortly be providing guidance on job shadowing for those who wish to develop their skills and/or career.

You can find a wide range of online resources on the LMA Hub that give you the opportunity to develop at a time and pace that suits you. This includes specially selected articles, books, videos, diagnostics and interactive tools that can help you with your development.

Whichever way you choose to develop your leadership practice, the Leadership and Management Academy is here to help.
