Management Development Programme


 

 

The Management Development Programme (MDP) is the first of our three management and leadership development interventions. A mixture of best practice and practical work, it provides a comprehensive introduction to management and has been designed around the College’s values, strategy and culture and the five areas within Royal Holloway’s new Leadership Behaviours Framework.

 

The programme includes five one-day modules, each of which builds on and reinforces the others.  Three half day ‘Action Learning Sets’ will also enable participants to work together as a group to apply their learning to the resolution of live issues each brings from their work area.

 

A key feature of the programme is the Reflective Learning Day. Held at the conclusion of all modules, participants reconvene to reflect on their learning and how it relates to their current role. In front of their course colleagues and own manager, and using their preferred method of delivery, each conveys what they most gained and how they are applying it.

 

Objectives

To increase the skill, knowledge and understanding of management practice within the Royal Holloway context, strategy and culture and the role and responsibility of managers within this

 

Overall, it will help participants to:

  • develop as a supportive group to take ownership of their learning, both on the programme and into the future
  • understand how their personality and preferences influence their thinking and be able to flex their behaviour to suit different management situations
  • understand team dynamics and use this to positively impact performance and motivation, set meaningful performance standards and give feedback and encouragement
  • manage performance issues positively and conduct difficult conversations which encourage change and improvement
  • promote joint working with internal and external partners towards shared outcomes

 

Who is it for?

Those who have management responsibilities as all or part of their role, whether within academic or professional services, and who have limited previous training or experience in management at a first level
