We believe that there are opportunities for development everywhere. Learning is not just about attending courses, it is about how we improve what we do, based on all that we experience.

Development everywhereIn our Talent First: Delivering the Difference strategy we have promised to “provide our ambitious staff with opportunities to develop their talents and realise their dreams, drawing on the skills and potential of the widest possible range of colleagues to maximise the benefits of difference” So, regardless of your role we think that there are a set of skills all of us need to develop our talent and pursue the extraordinary. Based on research and designed to complement the Sheffield Leader these themes are:

  • How we create and innovate
  • How we influence and network
  • Understanding how we impact on others
  • How we make decisions

To help facilitate your learning and develop your skills in these areas, at a time and in a way that suits you, on these webpages you will find a range of resources, including learning events, videos, online resources and books.
