The course will examine the fundamental concepts of leadership. Participants will explore some of the core theories of leadership, develop a better understanding of the strengths and weakness of these and a practical understanding of how these how leadership models can be applied within research contexts. This will also encourage personal development through self-reflection and critical awareness.
Participants will complete an online psychometric test in their own time before the course commences. The results will be fed back in a face to face, private, one to one coaching session with a qualified coach. The psychometric test will allow for development and discussion of key themes in leadership such as team working, emotional intelligence and de-railers to achieving goals and key targets.
Participants will learn in small groups alongside tutor-led sessions and experiential learning from established research leaders.
