Leading Through Influence

This is a University leadership programme designed for colleagues who lead and influence others within the University and/ or externally without direct line management responsibility. 

Getting things done at work requires planning, collaborating and problem solving. The ability to effectively draw on good relationships is essential when you rely on others to contribute to your task completion. This programme shares best practice in:

  • Managing yourself (insight)
  • Working with others (outsight)
  • Noticing the evolution of the wider context and how this affects your approach (foresight).

The programme consists of a number of modules, spread over several months, five two-hour Action Learning Sets, and some independent work

Leading Through Influence for 2023/2024 is now full. We will be calling for applications to our 2024/2025 leadership programmes in the summer. Please join our Viva Engage (Yammer) group to keep up to date with the latest announcements: People Development.
