Master Your Leadership helps postgraduate taught students develop and enhance their personal leadership skills and grow their networks in a rapidly changing world. Leadership in this new virtual world is about promoting collaboration and motivating yourself and others. This programme will help you to develop the skills and behaviours needed to take on these new leadership challenges.
You will complete the Kouzes and Posner 360° Student Leadership Challenge (LPI) which will help you to tailor a personal development plan. Participate in online sessions, work in virtual teams on an Employer Challenge and take time for individual preparation and reflection. The Employer Challenge is a real-world problem that is set by an employer relating to their work. Your team will create solutions and present back to the employer for feedback. This will develop your skills against the Graduate School’s five pillars, making you a more effective Thinker, Leader, Communicator and Innovator who is Future-Ready.
This programme offers recognition through the Graduate Plus award scheme. A number of 1:1 Coaching sessions are also available with one of the consultants once you have completed the programme.
