The recently developed CSL Distance Learning Programme provides an integrated leadership tool kit that has been built on our experience in running the CSL training course for over a decade. The Programme consists of 3 courses:
Course 1: Thinking Strategically
Professionals in leadership roles need to be able to see the bigger picture, identify and develop opportunities and enable action to take place. However, many find that much of their time is taken up with operational matters and day-to-day decision making.
This course provides tools to facilitate strategic thinking and action.
Course 2: Influencing Others
Whatever the leadership role, there is a need to get the support of many other people to advance projects, stimulate innovation and succeed with change. There is little of significance that can be achieved today by people working solely on their own.
This course provides tools to enable participants to improve how they influence others in support of effective communication and collaboration.
Course 3: Developing Your Leadership Practice
Leadership skill development is a journey of learning and improvement over time. In the face of research, projects, publication and administration, it is often hard for scientists and science professionals to find the time to focus on such work. Yet without it, success may harder to achieve and careers slower to progress.
This course provides time and tools to enable participants to consider their current challenges and to identify goals and plans for the future, including how to make time for what is most important.
