Talent + training = creative leadership at Essex
Few organisations can boast as much talent as the University. Many staff are already leaders in their own disciplines. The Leadership Programme aims to combine the talent that exists within the University with the other key determinant of success: training.
The upcoming programmes will all take place in person.
Future Leaders is the first-level leadership programme for academic staff and professional services colleagues at the University. The programme is a unique opportunity for these staff to develop their leadership skills and networks, widen their sphere of influence and find out how decisions are made across the University.
The programme is led by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and is a unique opportunity to develop your leadership skills and personal networks whilst formalising a career plan. It includes Belbin team role profiling, workshops and a group project.
Early career academics and professionals who are Grade 8 and above and who have an element of leadership and management in their role.
Future Leaders will take place over four days and will explore what it means to be in a leadership role at Essex.
