Leadership in Action

Do you want to become a better leader?

Would you like an opportunity to practise leadership skills in a safe environment?

Leadership in Action is a well-established and nationally recognised leadership training programme for early career researchers.

Participants will work closely with postdocs from other institutions (including hosts King's College London and University College London) and disciplines, thereby enhancing interpersonal communication and networking skills in the context of leadership development.

You will be supported in your learning by experienced coaches who will offer insights into how you operate in a leadership role throughout the course.

Funders and employers in the UK HE sector are increasingly looking to support researchers who can evidence leadership capability and good leadership practice. This course is a unique opportunity to reshape your ideas about being a leader and expand your leadership capabilities for your current role and beyond.
