Leading at McMaster
We have a number of supporting resources and programs to help build a strong leadership culture, with key elements embedded in all our organizational practices and leadership programs.
McMaster's leadership levels and programming
Recognizing that everyone is a leader in their role at the University, we have identified five levels of leadership. These levels are only meant to be guidelines to support learning and development for our leaders and are not associated with levels of compensation. They capture the breadth and span of leadership versus the evaluation of a role. All of the levels and supporting development programming are then grounded in our McMaster Leadership Capabilities, which are expected behaviours for all leaders.
The strategic perspective and scope of role progresses by level and the leadership level descriptions are meant to reflect the primary or core function of a leader’s role. There could be times where leaders are called to perform at different levels and the intent is to reflect the level where leaders spend the majority of their time.
