Advancing Academic Leadership - Chair Series

Advancing Academic Leadership - Chair Series

Designed for chairs, this learning series offers you the unique opportunity to ‘dig deep’ and to reflect on how your leadership values can (and must) shape your leadership practice. Guided by the book Academic Leadership: A Reflective Practice Guide for Community College Chairs, and through discussion, shared learnings, pooled experiences and consideration of exemplary practices these highly interactive sessions will provide you with the opportunity to connect with other chairs, learn from each other, and identify leadership practices to apply in your own department. This is the opportunity for you to invest in your own development and in the teams, that you lead, through meaningful discussions with peers who have similar goals and aspirations for their departments. We guarantee that you will leave each session with concrete ideas and strategies to build on and enhance your leadership practice, and shape your future actions. 

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this series you will be able to:

  • Identify the values that inform your leadership practice and analyze your leadership practice for congruency with your guiding values
  • Collect meaningful feedback to inform your own reflective practice regarding your leadership behaviours and actions
  •  Apply concrete approaches to creating a high-functioning team and positive team culture
  • Formulate or enhance a leadership strategy for your department.
