We can more effectively plan and review our existing leadership development provision, so staff are ready to take on key leadership roles across the University, when they come up. We can more actively manage and nurture talent.
- Talent management - we will introduce succession planning and talent management initiatives to develop the next generation of professional service leaders proactively and collectively
- Leadership provision review – we will review our leadership development provision to help us understand the academic and professional services leadership development needs and priorities for Oxford, and we will recommend changes to how we currently support our leaders to grow
- Leaders’ Community - we will bring together leaders from across the University to collaborate, network, and develop as a community.
- The Confident Manager – this hugely successful development course has been transformed into a flexible, modular programme with increased capacity from Michaelmas term 2023. The programme focuses on continuously supporting all people managers throughout their career and in a changing environment. It has been expanded to include new masterclasses for managers on new areas, created in partnership with teams across the University, including Leading Continuous Improvement, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Wellbeing, and Health and Safety.
