CICan Leadership Institute for Non-Managerial Staff and Faculty

June 24 - 29, 2023 | All Day

Who should attend

This Leadership Institute is designed for those currently in a non-managerial staff or faculty role, who are looking to progress in their careers and aspire to become a manager. Recently appointed managers may be interested in attending to garner knowledge on the leadership profile essential for success and approaches that may contribute to the development of their function within the institution.

Key areas will be examined, including:

  • leadership – self-assessment and skills assessment;
  • the environmental context: changes and challenges for institutions;
  • transitioning from a non-managerial position to management;
  • moving from a program focus to a broader institutional focus;
  • senior management expectations;
  • leading in a unionized environment; and
  • the importance of relationships and building team capacity.

CICan should be on every Canadian college or institute educator’s radar! This group’s ability to represent the sector on a national scale can not be overstated. The network and insight I have developed from this experience will serve me, my colleagues, and my students well into the future.
