The aims of Sheffield Leader:

Who Sheffield Leader 1 is for:

You are likely to be in your first leadership and management position or be a first line manager/team leader who has not previously undertaken any leadership development. Your role could either be in the form of a defined line management position or in a position of leadership as an expert in your chosen field. In academic areas, this could include the supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Your sphere of influence will be primarily within your own team and your stakeholders will be other members of your team (peers and/or line reports), your own immediate line manager and, in student-facing roles, students.

What Sheffield Leader 1 involves:

The time commitment will be 2 days as follows and will be encouraged to review their leadership development through SRDS.

Module 1 (1 day) – including leadership styles and management versus leadership

Module 2 (1 day) – including leading change and managing performance
