- Completion of Module 2
Module introduction: Having completed a diagnosis of the leadership challenges in our Higher Education Institutions, the next step is to identify possible actions to address these challenges. Addressing such challenges however requires leadership. This module examines the competencies that make one ready to lead a research team to overcome challenges, as well as the preparations needed by the individual to be able to lead others. Knowing oneself is a pre-requisite to identifying gaps in one’s competencies to lead, as is knowing one’s circle of influence. The module then examines the common elements of a successful university research ecosystem, which then enables the participants to examine their own institutional research ecosystems to identify possible actions to improve them. The module therefore concludes with detailed planning exercises in which participants select possible actions to address the ecosystem gaps earlier identified.
