Leadership and Management Development

The University has identified effective leadership at the most senior level as vital in securing future success.Hand and globe

Our objective, is to facilitate the identification and development of a pool of capable leaders that is empowered with the practical and emotional skills required to perform at the highest level.

To help meet this objective the SDU has specific programmes for the development of both newly appointed and experienced senior leaders in formal leadership roles e.g. deans, heads of academic units/service units, directors of research institutes, pro-vice-chancellors etc.

This part of the SDU's website gives those senior managers in formal leadership roles (as described above and operating at level H and above) information on the dedicated development opportunities that are available to them.

The SDU also has development opportunities for managers and leaders who operate at other levels of the University. Talk to your manager about your precise needs and then contact the SDU for more information/support. Please contact Helen Doyle if you are a middle manager in Professional Services or Liz Kemp if you are an academic manager.
