This programme is designed to support academic, research and professional service leaders and managers with the skills and insights they need to lead others effectively. It will enable participants to reflect on their current leadership style and provide techniques they can use to effectively manage a diverse range of perspectives and create an inclusive culture across the University. Those with responsibility for others have a key role to play in shaping a positive working environment, supporting progression and ensuring equality, including pay equality. Given the University's strategic priorities, it is critical that leaders and managers understand the impact of their decisions throughout the employment timeline and know how to reduce the risk of sex, race or other discrimination, whether explicit or implicit.

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.


Seminar Series: Seminar 3 with Dr Paul Greatrix, Registrar, University of Nottingham

After the storm: how professional services staff should respond to the transformed HE landscape

For those who have been working in higher education for some time as well as those who are new to the sector it can feel like a really fast-moving and challenging environment. Change is constant and getting more rapid and less predictable all the time. This session will look at how professional services staff can respond to this transformed landscape and the approaches and attitudes we will need to adopt to survive and thrive. It won’t be all doom and gloom though as we will explore some of the lighter aspects of sector life too.
