Academic Management and Leadership Skills: 14 April

This course is intended for Assistant and Associate Professors with 5 – 10 years of managerial experience after having obtained their PhD. It offers up-to-date knowledge on the playing field within the university to help them increase their ability to exert influence on that field. 
We often recommend this course to employees who have the ambition to take on a more managerial role in the future. This course can be seen as preparation for the Course Academic Leadership.

The course focuses on:
•    Influencing peers, strategic networking (influence and power), managerial roles and styles.
•    Operating in a political environment (decision making; determining direction; stakeholder analysis; daring to take action; and delegation, which is complex because you will often delegate to peers).
•    Knowledge of institutional strategy and translating this to your own role.
•    Increasing organisational sensitivity, negotiation skills and meeting techniques, with a particular focus on determining your stance and creating acceptance for your ideas.
•    Intercultural communication, diversity and inclusion.

Leading from the Middle: 11 April

This course is intended for middle managers who are the link between operational management and academic staff. For instance: controllers, advisors, board secretaries, or Institute Managers and their assistants. This course offers more insight into their own role, a better understanding of financial and HRM tasks and offers tools on how to deal with the often complex issues. 

A limited number of places have become available due to cancellations. Registration closes on 19 March.
