Description

The Leadership and Management Development Institute for Current Program Chairs is targeted at those currently serving in these management roles.  Not every institution uses this title, however, the incumbents are typically responsible for a few program areas in their institutions.

This intensive program is designed to enhance the skill sets of Chairs as leaders within their respective areas and as part of the wider institutional leadership teams. The institute will also address skills which related to the management requirements of Chairs roles respective of those of the senior leaders of the institutions.

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 institute will be structured to allow participants to examine a number of key areas, including:

  • the environmental context in which institutions currently exist
  • moving from a lens of program focus to that of institution wide focus
  • the key elements and tough challenges of being a chair
  • senior management expectations and team relationships
  • building team capacity
  • managing in a college/institute context
  • the value of mentorship – for self and for team

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 30 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.
