The course focusses on identifying and honing your own personal leadership style. It will bring leadership to all aspects of your personal and professional life.


Whether you are following an academic career path, working in commercial research or considering your career options, you will:


  • understand a range of leadership styles
  • work with a team of proven leaders from a range of careers
  • develop as an effective leader of people and teams
  • use strengths and achievements to create success
  • build confidence in leadership abilities in a range of situations
  • gain advantage in highly competitive employment situations

All in a safe, supportive environment

“I found the course extremely helpful in reflecting on my leadership ability. When I arrived I felt like someone who was often ‘thrown into’ leadership roles. I left feeling that I was a leader.”
