This session will provide an overview of work conducted in 2015 into the experiences of academics in leadership positions and what they wished they had known at the beginning.  The session will be interactive and will also explore the issues involved when academics are required to demonstrate leadership but have no formal position of authority or line management.  The session will involve a discussion about potential opportunities for enhancement that may result from these activities.

By the end of the session, participants should:

  1. Be able to identify the challenges and opportunities involved in academic leadership positions
  2. And be able to seek out opportunities of leadership that will lead to their own professional development
