2nd EAUC Leadership Lab
Date: 3 July 2017 18:00 - 5 July 2017 16:00
Venue: Westminster College, Cambridge
The 2nd EAUC Leadership Lab at Cambridge University. Invitation/Alumni nomination only. 3-5th July 2017, Westminster College, Cambridge.
Is your leadership future ready? Are you having the impact you need on senior leaders and decision-makers?
Building on last year's huge success and the ongoing co-development Alumni programme, we are offering the next iteration of the EAUC's Executive Driving Sustainability Leadership Programme, the Leadership Lab at Cambridge.
This intensive, residential event continues to build and benefit from insight and content tested recently in three UK university leadership teams and the proven executive education program at Harvard University alongside several other international leadership events.
The EAUC delivery team currently comprises: Leith Sharp - Director of Executive Education for Sustainability Leadership, Harvard University; Wendy Purcell - EAUC Board Director/Trustee, Emeritus Professor and Visiting Scientist Harvard University; Iain Patton - EAUC CEO; Jane Davidson - EAUC Board Director/Trustee, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Engagement & Sustainability, University of Wales Trinity Saint David; Janet Haddock-Fraser - EAUC Board Director/Trustee and Chair in Sustainability and Leadership, Manchester Metropolitan University
For 3 years the EAUC has worked with Leith Sharp, to build a unique sustainability leadership programme focussing on influencing organisational culture to facilitate transformative change for sustainability. The sustainability leadership lab will enable you to design and pilot new organisational models and leadership practices that break down pre-existing silos, create trust and leverage the unique capabilities of different stakeholders to tackle challenges with increased levels of engagement, creativity, agility and effectiveness. We need leaders to lead in ways that sustain, rather than drain, creativity and empower teams to deliver against institutional strategy.
The programme will focus on helping you to develop the leadership toolkit you need to help lead your institution in realising its sustainability potential. With the opportunity to learn from experts from Harvard University, UK HE Executives and industry, as well as your peers, the EAUC Driving Sustainability Leadership Programme is unique in the sector in terms of its focus and content. The programme positions sustainability as a powerful transformational force for ensuring quality growth, purpose and relevance for tertiary education.
Why a Lab? In short, although we will be providing you with executive training and new models of leadership, we do not pretend to have all of the answers. Bringing sustainability and institutional leaders together to share, network and coach will help us to identify and crystallise new ideas, methods and practices. The Lab is a space for shared learning, trying out ideas and testing them on your peers. Learning from each other is just as important as learning from the excellent speakers at this event, and your input will be crucial in shaping the future of the EAUC Driving Sustainability Leadership Programme.
This unique residential event is designed to advance new leadership and organisational capabilities developed by the Harvard programme that will best prepare the sector to embrace sustainability at the highest level. It addresses the work of transforming long-standing organisational identity, culture, structures and processes to unleash new levels of engagement, change, innovation and agility - with a focus on sustainability and future-ready graduates. How can the tertiary education sector become as agile, innovative and change capable as the world around it, while ensuring that human and planetary wellbeing is at the core of its mission and business? This training will equip you with the tools to form your own individual solution to this question.
This event is invitation or alumni nomination only. Places are very limited and successful applicants will have their place confirmed.
Programme starts 6pm Monday 3rd July and ends by 4pm Wednesday 5th July.
