Leadership in Action

Researcher Development is excited to announce that QMUL will be participating in the online version of the Leadership in Action in October 2021.

Expressions of Interest for Leadership in Action are now open (until end of business on 03 September 2021)


Leadership in Action is a training course that provides you with an opportunity to practise leadership skills in a safe environment. Crafted around the Resilient Leaders Development Programme, it is action packed with a minimal amount of theoretical input. During the course you will undertake different activities in teams with each participant having at least one opportunity to lead a team on an activity. You will be supported in your learning by experienced coaches who will offer insights into how you operate in a leadership role. You will work with researchers drawn from across different disciplines and from different universities*. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with a colleague to gain more personal insights and practice your coaching capability, which is an additional leadership skill.

We have only 6 places for our researchers. Places will be prioritised for postdoctoral researchers (including research fellows), early-career academics (new lecturers), and senior PhD students. Priority will also be informed by the order in which your expression of interest is received. Depending on how other institutions fill their places, we may have additional places available so there will be a brief waiting list.
