CAPCSD is pleased to offer this second webinar focused on academic leadership for new, experienced, and aspiring academic leaders.
Academic leadership has been described as one of the most challenging jobs in the current era, requiring a unique set of competencies and skills beyond those associated with more traditional leadership settings. Unfortunately, most Ph.D. programs focus on individual performance and/or research output and do not provide adequate training related to effective leadership in academia.
This session is designed to get attendees thinking about leadership structures, roles, pathways, and opportunities in higher education and beyond. Register today to consider how developing your unique skills might contribute to leadership in your discipline!
- List ways to develop a multi-pronged approach to realize your leadership potential.
- Discuss how you might use your potential in an actionable leadership role.
- List leaders who might mentor you and their roles.
