Who should attend
This Leadership Institute is designed for those currently in the role of manager, associate dean, or associate director, who are looking to progress in their careers and aspire to become deans or directors. Recently appointed deans and directors 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.
What you will learn
This intensive program is designed primarily to enhance participants’ knowledge of the expectations at the dean and director level. Managers who are looking to progress in their careers and develop their leadership abilities will examine the current and emerging requirements of the roles of deans and directors and the leadership profile and skills essential for success in a changing and challenging landscape.
A number of key areas will be examined, including:
- leadership (self-assessment and skills assessment);
- the environmental context: changes and challenges for institutions;
- transitioning from a program focus to a broader institutional focus: seeing things differently;
- management vs leadership;
- senior management expectations;
- team relationships and building team capacity;
- leading in a unionized environment;
- the value of mentorship and coaching: for self and for a team; and,
- the key elements and challenges of the dean/director roles.

The training offered by CICAN was experiential and absolutely relevant to advancing participants to new Leadership Roles. The faculty are approachable, engaging and so knowledgeable and eager to share their experiences. I would highly recommend this training.
