Management, Leadership and Teamworking course


Target Audience: Level 4 Research staff (especially early career researchers - ECRs and early career academics - ECA's)

Brief Outline: We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to attend a two-day residential management and team skills training course. The activity aims to develop participants’ skills in working as part of a team, which includes effective communication, negotiation, constructive conflict, leadership and development of team cohesion. At the same time, participants are able to practice and develop their management skills, which include setting objectives, decision-making, time management, resource management, creative thinking, risk taking, problem solving, planning and control. These skills are developed through the experience of working in a team on a number of management tasks and through reflective debrief sessions guided by an experienced facilitator.

This course is an exciting approach to learning about management, leadership and team development. You will engage in a series of outdoor challenges designed to test and develop the skills necessary for successfully working as part of a team and as a manager. You will work in teams and will be accompanied by a facilitator. Through structured reflection, you and your team, with the aid of the facilitator, will explore relevant management theories and frameworks. The course does not require an above average level of fitness and personal needs such a disabilities, injuries, dietary requirements, and other special arrangements can usually be accommodated.
