Resilience, Leadership and Me

Explore your understanding and application of learning best practice, strengthen your leadership skills and develop resilience for change through this new online GEM training course.

“I feel I now have a better grasp on leading styles and can better advocate for learning within my organisation. I believe that it has given me more confidence in my own abilities and power within my organisation.” – Resilience, Leadership and Me Course Attendee

What will you gain?

Resilience, Leadership and Me will provide practitioners the opportunity to develop their understanding and application of leadership in learning organisations, working with stakeholders, advocacy for learning, planning and managing for learning and your personal career journey.

Participants will share skills and explore the principles of resilience and leadership for heritage learning, helping to put your learning it into practice in a meaningful way. Who is it for? We’re all leaders and this programme puts leadership in the context of heritage learning and organisational behaviours.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at learning professionals at any stage in their career, and not just those in a specific ‘leadership role’. It is most suited to those looking to improve or build upon their practice as leaders and advocates within heritage learning. At a time of huge change within our sector, everyone has a part to play in leading the future of heritage learning.

Who runs the course?

Nick Winterbotham is a former director and chief executive of many prestigious museums, including Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, National Railway Museum, York, and the Museum of East Anglian Life. Nick is now the managing director of Nick Winterbotham Associates, delivering high quality consultation and training on leadership, heritage learning and team development, amongst other subjects.

When and where is it?
