Overview

Preparing for Leadership (PfL) is a two-day professional development programme. The workshop is for Research Active Staff (RAS) - (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research & Teaching contracts). It is suitable for Research Active Staff (RAS) who are starting to take leadership roles or who wish to take on more leadership roles in the future. This two-day programme uses an experiential, coaching and action-learning approach to guide RAS through aspects of leadership, such as, leading the self, intellectual leadership and team leadership. The programme is suitable for RAS of all disciplines, and particularly benefits from bringing together mixed groups of disciplines and departments. Delegates assess their current position and identify where they would like to be, what it takes to be in that role and create a plan to get there.

This workshop is based on a successful Vitae workshop (Vitae programme funded by the UK Research Councils) which has been adapted for Warwick staff.
