About the workshop
Higher Education leaders now undertake work of a more complex nature, operating in an autonomous and strategic manner. As such, emerging leaders must be better equipped with the appropriate tools to achieve success, develop greater strategic awareness and effectively engage with senior leadership.
Developed specifically for HEW Level 7-9 professionals, this two-day workshop will provide an opportunity to advance core skills and explore the emerging leadership capabilities required for effective HEW Level 7-9 managers and leaders. It will explore the core attributes of successful leadership within the Higher Education environment, unpack practical strategies to lead productive teams, improve decision making, apply strategic management thinking and develop key skills of stakeholder engagement and communication.
