New Practical Sessions for Managers and Staff During Times of Change
In support of the launch of the Organising for Success project at the start of the year, L&OD reached out to Senior Leaders at the University with an invitation to provide support through this time of change.
L&OD provided a number of different options to senior leaders of what was available, and as a result, during March the team reviewed and refreshed existing material, and designed and developed new materials for session delivery to commence from the middle of March.
The sessions designed complement the Organising for Success sessions, Leadership Bulletins and other University briefings.
