Academic Leadership

A course designed to give insight into your personal leadership style and to help you develop it further. 

The course program alternates between theory and practice, individual coaching and peer supervision. There is also room for personal learning objectives and questions from other participants.

Participation in this course is a necessary qualification for management, to grow from assistant professor to associate professor. We strive to have gender balance in the course as it is important for the group dynamics and effectiveness of the course.

In your role as an assistant professor, and as an aspiring associate professor, you will need skills to manage, inspire, motivate and coach diverse professionals. Creating a safe and inclusive work climate, managing quality of research and education and financial management are other important aspects of your (new) role.
