Leadership and Management in Higher Education

It is no simple task to balance the demands of leading a department or function. To manage the expectations of – and deliver results to – a long list of internal and external stakeholders, you must constantly evolve your negotiation and personnel management skills. Continuing to develop these leadership skills will help you create mutually-beneficial outcomes, taking into consideration your needs, as well as those of your colleagues, your college or university, and all involved.
