Research Leadership

A good ending to this year's Research Leadership Programmes.  On Wednesday, Cohort A benefited from a fascinating discussion with Diana Woodhouse PVC (R) at Oxford Brookes, as well as exploring strategies for leading without formal authority (influencing skills etc), and ways to manage cultural change through the organisation.

On Thursday, Cohort B heard from Angelo Cangelosi from Plymouth, who shared his experience and learning from major interdisciplinary research projects he is running, and we also explored Emotional Intelligence as applied to Leadership very fruitfully.

The two cohorts have different agendas, as they design their own programme at the start of the year, which ensures both relevance and buy-in.

The final review suggests they all found it very beneficial: I hope that the University has the wisdom to see that and to re-run it next year...
