At the University of Alberta we believe Leaders develop the ability to make things happen by encouraging and channeling the contributions of others, taking a stand on and addressing important issues, and acting as a catalyst for change.
Leadership development is a process not just a program. Continuous development and enhancement of the leadership development systems and learning initiatives are a necessary part of supporting leaders throughout their term. Leaders require both management and leadership skills.
Leadership and Management Development learning opportunities at the University of Alberta encourage practical application of knowledge and skills through specific leadership initiatives or action learning projects. Support for these initiatives include coaching, project based opportunities, and access to resources that support effective leadership practices. Technology-enabled resources are also made available.
