The Advance HE Leadership Scoping Study and Survey Report provides seminal research into leadership in higher education. Drawn from the research are eleven qualities (skills, competencies, and approaches) that have been suggested as most important, of which have been identified as hallmarks of ‘good’ leadership: these being ‘authentic’, ‘collaborative’ and ‘adaptable’.
These podcasts, from the Advance HE member project, Leadership for the Future, focuses on these three key components of modern leadership in higher education drawn out from the survey: Adaptability, Authenticity and Collaboration.

Leadership Survey for Higher Education
In September 2022 we invited all higher education leaders (and those in related organisations including research institutes) from all areas, in all roles, formal and informal, in all parts of the world where Advance HE has a connection, to undertake the survey.
The survey was the latest stage in a larger initiative to explore the question ‘What works for leadership in higher education?’ Generating an objective evidence base to deepen our collective understanding of how leadership operates – socially, relationally, structurally and systemically – is at the heart of this project. Linked to this is the goal of establishing a practical and scholarly grounding for supporting and developing leaders and leadership, both formal and informal.
