English Leadership Development Institute for Potential Deans and Directors
Jun 21 - 27th, 2015 | Georgetown Royalty,
Rodd Brudenell River Resort
86 Dewars Lane, Georgetown Royalty, , Canada | View Map


The Leadership Development Institute (LDI) will be of interest to those considering deans, directors or equivalent positions across all areas of college/institute operations. The intensive residential program is designed to enable participants to explore whether a dean or director position is one they wish to pursue in the future.

Participants will be guided by a core group of faculty with guest faculty providing leadership for particular segments. The skills, knowledge and experience of the participants themselves will be built upon in an interactive environment. The week will be structured to allow participants to examine a number of key areas, including:

  • the environmental context in which institutions currently exist
  • leadership – self-assessment and skills assessment
  • the key elements and tough challenges of being a dean or director
  • senior management expectations and team relationships
  • building a leadership team
  • making the decision to apply
  • applying for the job

Note: The operational language will be English. Participants will also be signed up for a group electronic list in late May and will receive further information on the agenda, getting to know one another, arranging rides, etc.

Early registration is encouraged for a maximum of 25 participants. Participation is restricted to individuals from CICan member institutions and to a maximum of 3 participants per college. Should space permit, an additional participant may be considered.
