Preparing for Senior Strategic Leadership

Develop the personal resilience, emotional intelligence and creativity needed by those operating at a strategic level in higher education.

The development of an effective strategic leader in the volatile and challenging HE sector is rooted in their ability to connect with the institution’s purpose. It is through this connection that an effective leader can manage organisational change, develop emotional intelligence and personal resilience, handle sensitive issues and proactively engage in strategic response to sector issues or provocation.
