Leadership defined by you and shaped by capability

While being a leader can be an incredibly rewarding experience, it can also be a complex and challenging one, and require mastery of a different set of skills to those that were important in other roles.

Building leadership capability in academic and professional leaders and aspiring leaders is a critical priority from Our People Plan and fundamental to our combined future success as an innovative university. The Learning and Development team offer a range of leadership development programs, tailored around the skills that make leaders effective at different leadership stages, to support leaders and aspiring leaders in this rewarding but challenging role.
