Delivering a High Performance Culture - INVITED SLMS STAFF ONLY
Professional Development Programme

Directors, Heads of Reseach Departments, Principal Investigators & Senior Academic staff who have leadership and/or management responsibilities and who have been invited to take part on the recommendation of their Dean.

This half day workshop is part of the focused training programme provided by SLMS to accurately address the needs of leaders in the School. It will explore some of the key behaviours and skills to be exhibited by leaders to effectively manage the performance and development of individuals and teams. The key message from the workshop being that performance management is an ongoing activity, not just something that happens once or twice a year. Furthermore, it should be used by leaders as a means in order to get the best out of their people. The workshop shows how to ensure an appreciative conversational approach, and it will provide participants with the "know-how” to apply the above meaningfully and ultimately create a high performance culture within their teams.

This workshop supports your development in line with the UCL Core Behaviours Framework.

To explore what is needed in terms of behaviours and practice, from leaders, in order to create a high performance culture where people can and do perform to their best.

  • Describe their leadership and management role in terms of ensuring high performance, including during times of change, and what this looks like in practice
