One of the Centre’s main strengths is its expertise in the CPD Week theme of Leadership. One of our favourite videos on our YouTube Playlist is entitled “Politically astute leadership for public managers” featuring a discussion by the Centre's Academic Director, Jean Hartley. This is well worth a watch and the link is here. Don’t overlook the complementary course “An introduction to Public Leadership” which many of you have already studied.
Sometimes we are in situations where we have to act as leaders. Sometimes we have to accept the leadership of others - and maybe thought that we could have done it better? One course that allows you to think about how you can improve your own leadership competencies is our new course entitled “Leadership and followership” which looks at examples of good and bad leadership and studies the most common leadership challenges. The course can be found here
