  • 5. December: 08:30-16:30
  • 6. December: 08:30-16:30

Where: Meeting Room 1 - Building 1420

About: While leading others is often part of advancing our career, whether inside or outside of academia, often those in leadership positions do not receive training in how to lead. This three-day, practical, pragmatic and participatory course introduces participants to four essential ‘elements’ of leadership and self-leadership. In the process of doing so, it explores what leadership is and offers practical tools and strategies to help you begin to lead others more effectively.
