Strategic Leaders

For individuals that oversee a function and/or team within a department or faculty, consider attending the Strategic Leaders Program, which builds on McMaster’s six leadership capabilities and integrates three key themes: Leading Self, Leading Others, and Leading at the University.

The Winter 2020 cohort will be resuming in Fall 2020. Application dates and the program schedule for Winter 2021 will be posted in mid-September.

A New, Bold, and Different Way of Thinking about Leadership

Participants of this program will gain an awareness of their current capabilities and work to develop them to more effectively lead others and ultimately position themselves to grow their careers within McMaster. Individuals meeting program requirements will earn a McMaster University Certificate of Completion.

The curriculum is based on current literature drawing from diverse sectors, research, and best practices. A variety of learning methods are incorporated including a McMaster specific multi-rater leadership assessment, experiential and self-reflection activities including journaling, small group work, case studies, and more. Activities to support learning application include coaching, mentoring, small group activities, and experiential learning in the community. Examples of leadership, best practices, and guest speakers from McMaster University and the Hamilton community will be integrated throughout the program. An online component will enable participants to stay connected between sessions and complete pre-assignments.

The Strategic Leaders Program is delivered by the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) and sponsored by Human Resources Services. Read more about how the Strategic Leaders pilot program received an award at CAUCE 2018.
