For many people having challenging conversations can be difficult and feel uncomfortable; however the ability to be able to talk about sensitive and emotive issues is an integral part of effective line management and can be critical to managing performance, promoting attendance and improving team dynamics.

This module will give you some practical steps to help you handle these conversations better and, where possible, get the right outcome for you, the individual and the University.


Paul Mylrea, Director of Communications, University of Cambridge will explore navigating change and challenge in major organisations.

Our institution faces major change – regulatory, political and global.

This seminar will look at leaders from a range of sectors and how they have dealt with change – some well, some less so.

Forming a key component to the Strategic Development Programme but open to those in administrative leadership roles, the Seminar Series aims to explore the experiences of specialists in HE administration from both inside and outside the University.
