by Dr Elaine Walsh

About the seminar:

This webinar will enable participants to expand their knowledge and understanding of leadership through the exploration of leadership attributes, styles and behaviours. They will see how postgraduate study develops transferable skills essential for leadership. Leadership is an essential and complex skill which is highly prized by employers. This workshop will discuss the different styles of leadership and a leadership model based on the required behaviours of a successful leader. Participants will be equipped to reflect upon, and discuss their leadership potential developed through academic experience.
