Developing leaders from within

Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


The development of educational leaders and managers from within can be a highly effectual way to enhance leadership and managerial capacity within any learning institution. The post-millennium global education market requires higher education institutions (HEI) to consider radical changes in their structures, operations, and missions to stay relevant and sustainable. Leadership in Higher Education operates in a multi-dimensional matrix context due to the complexities arising from an increasing number and variety of stakeholders influencing decision-making. Developing leaders from within provides a framework for HEIs that prioritises utilisation of existing resources as well as providing access for all to leadership development opportunities. The focus of each project was to advance understanding of an institution’s leadership development landscape to determine where leadership development improvements could be made. The composite conversation gives rise to need for further consideration of how institutional development programmes can be used to reveal and recognise the leadership impact that academics can have on peers and learning alike.
