The University of Manchester is delighted to be hosting this nationally recognised researcher leadership course.


Do you want to...

·         develop your leadership skills?

·         explore the concept of leadership?

·         build confidence in your leadership style?

·         develop and maintain a sense of direction?

·         influence people towards a common goal?

·         make a difference at the University of Manchester?


What's in it for me?

·         explore leadership both in theory and in practice

·         receive feedback on your leadership style and how you can develop it

·         learn more about your strengths and weaknesses

·         understand your personal values and how you make decisions

·         recognise your achievements and how to use these to create future success

·         understand the impact you have on those who you are leading

·         identify how these skills can benefit you in your current role

·         take a few days out from your research both physically and mentally, and have some space in which to consider yourself and your next steps


What will it involve?

·         The course will be attended by up to 36 researchers from different disciplines and career stages. The course will be led by a team of experienced facilitators who will work with you throughout the 3 days to support your learning. They will be from a variety of backgrounds with experience in leadership, academia and other sectors.

·         This course takes a ‘learning by doing' approach. There will be presentations on leadership theory, but for the most part, you will be actively participating in the sessions and activities.

·         This is an intensive 3 day non-residential course. By registering for the course you are committing to attend the course in full (from 09:00-17:15 on each day). Part attendance is not acceptable.


What other researchers say about the course:

·         96% participants would recommend this course to other researchers

·         Where to start? - it was challenging, demanding, thought provoking, informative.

·         I attended the ‘Leadership in Action' course expecting to pick up a few tips, the odd insight. I left 6 inches taller, with increased confidence, team skills and satisfaction.

·         Attending this course has been a life changing experience for me. It was very inspirational and I have recommended it to all of my colleagues and friends. The things I learnt will stay with me for the rest of my life and I know they will play a huge role in my future achievements. A big, big thank you to the tutors they were fantastic.
