This report provides a brief overview of leadership and management and its development in the higher education (HE) sector in Australia and New Zealand. The findings are based on the inputs of conversations with 20 respondents in a variety of roles across 18 organisations.
The conversations highlight opportunities for developing leadership and management to address the ongoing concerns of the sector around sustainability – fiscal, social and most urgently, of workforce, specifically the need to engage and energise wearied and jaded staff; and create more equitable, culturally welcoming workplaces.
A range of leadership and management development topics and capability areas are suggested. These aim to bring academics and professionals closer in their understanding, language and approaches to leading and managing complex, multi-faceted universities that both achieve social good and are good businesses.
