‘Impact and Influence’ AHUA programme for Directors

27 February 2017      Cheryl Pick, Projects and Engagement Manager

Impact and influence: a development programme for directors in HE

The next iteration of the AHUA’s successful impact and influence programme will start in June 2017 with a deadline for applications of 21 April.

Impact and influence is aimed at directors and heads of professional services in HE – for example directors of finance, estates, HR, student services etc.

The programme offers participants the opportunity to develop enhanced leadership skills and the ability to influence more effectively at senior levels, explore creative solutions to organisational challenges and establish a network of peers from a variety of functions.

It focuses on:

  • organisational culture in HE and its impact on individual and team effectiveness;
  • what makes a high performing team, and how to maximise individual and team strengths;
  • how best to navigate the sometimes tricky interface between the professional and academic communities.

In addition to input from facilitators and speakers, participants are provided with 1-1 coaching and membership of an action learning set in which to explore current business issues with a new network of peers from across the sector.

Feedback from those who have sponsored participants on previous programmes suggests that institutions gain more engaged and better networked leaders with increased self-awareness and a new range of key contacts across organisations and specialisations.

For further information, see the programme brochure and application form, visit the AHUA’s website, or speak to Catherine Webb, AHUA Executive Secretary, on 0161 275 8095.
