Event Details

Probationer: Choice for those on Teaching and Research contract
Highly recommended: ‘Early career’ academic & research staff who wish to understand more about working strategically
Of interest to: All academics/researchers who wish to assess their own priorities and become more focussed

This workshop is an opportunity for early career academics, particularly at the transition point into a first leadership role, to stop and take stock of your leadership and be strategic. What are you aiming for – what is your vision? What needs to change to develop your research leadership skills? How do you balance competing priorities? We will do some benchmarking of where you are now and some action planning towards where you want to be.

 Intended learning outcomes

After this session, participants should be able to:

  • Understand their strengths/areas for development
  • Plan realistic actions and set appropriate goals and priorities to excel in their personal, professional, and academic endeavours
  • Have some tools to plan their career/ research strategy
  • Navigate the performance expectations of their role

Please note: for those not on probation, a record of attendance will be uploaded to iTrent for staff development purposes. Please indicate in the ‘Specific Requirements’ box when booking if you do NOT wish for your attendance to be uploaded to iTrent.
