Learn about the four key leadership intelligences 

Find out what is meant by emotional, social and political, cultural (or narrative) and inclusive intelligence with this programme. 

A variety of learning opportunities

Bring your organisation together 

Participants will learn to use your narrative intelligence in order to engage with your organisation and its people to develop shared commitments and goals. 

Develop your leadership strategy  

Preparing for Senior Strategic Leadership provides participants with the tools required to consider how to best develop your leadership strategy and apply it across the institution or department as a whole. 

But don’t take it from us. Previous participants have found the programme to be engaging and thought-provoking. 

The PSSL course was brilliant… the approach and support from the course leaders was outstanding and really took leadership outside the box to bring learning to life.”

Laura Williams, Cardiff Metropolitan University

Preparing for Senior Strategic Leadership was a compelling, thought-provoking and highly experiential programme which gave me a great deal of time to reflect, observe, think, plan and network with peers at a similar level in different HEIs.”

Steve Gaskin, the University of Plymouth
