Working in higher education today, you need to be adaptable and resilient to meet the new demands of your role in a rapidly evolving sector. To reach your full potential and be successful you need to be flexible, open minded and self-aware.  But how do you do that?

For a better understanding of how to succeed at work, we will explore concepts such as personal leadership, self-awareness and what it means to be a reflective practitioner. You will explore different communication behaviours and identify ways in which you could alter your own communication style to work effectively with others.

You will look outside yourself to your organisation and external environment, and within yourself.  This will enable you to identify the aspects of your professional practice you wish to progress further, consolidate, or replace, to develop yourself and realise your full potential as a HE professional.

You will leave the session with a number of resources to take back to the workplace and continue your professional development.

Who is it for?

This session is relevant to all professional services staff looking to review and improve their professional effectiveness.

What will I learn?

By the end of the day, delegates will:

  • Be able to describe behaviours associated with professionalism and how these can empower them to achieve their potential
  • Have greater insight into ways to raise self-awareness to inform future professional practice
  • Have reviewed and considered their current life balance
  • Have gained deeper understanding of the crucial role feedback plays in personal and professional development


I found it very thought provoking

Jan brought together the group in discussion about our behaviours and enabled us to clearly align to experiences at work and I now feel equipped to use the techniques.

Informal friendly atmosphere which encouraged group participation
