Impact and Influence (ENHANCED Leadership Framework)

Course Code: 492

Target Audience

This module is part of our ENHANCED Leadership Programme for Grade 9, 10 and 11 Professional Services Leaders, and Academic Colleagues who are in Heads of College, Department or Director roles.

Course Overview

Leading universities are full of exceptionally bright, independent-minded people with high expectations and no time to waste. In such a testing environment, how can Leaders communicate in ways that cut some ice?

Communicating brilliantly is what distinguishes a leader who can take people with them from one who relies on positional authority. It is how a talented professional handles the variety of situations that the university environment presents. But the people who do best in senior roles are also those who know how to carry their authority well. They command loyalty and respect and they are listened to. They build good working relationships. They inspire and motivate.

This lively and engaging course from VOX Coaching will help you to hone your existing communication skills. The course will help you to develop a confident and authentic style based on a practical understanding of status, assertiveness and genuine authority.

After the course, you’ll be able to get access to a course summary, follow-up material and the VOX Academy – an online repository of written guidance, lively videos and other resources to help you extend your learning and take your communication skills to the next level.
