The Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education (POD) and Michigan State University are hosting the inaugural POD Leadership Development Institute 2012. The POD Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is “designed to provide an introduction to leadership development for faculty developers and other academic administrators in higher education. The POD LDI will be analogous to the POD International Institute for New Faculty Developers, in providing a foundation to identify and explore key issues and decisions for those who wish to provide leadership development programs and services for their institutions.”
When: May 22-24, 2012
Where: Michigan State University Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center
Intended Audiences: POD Network members; Faculty developers in higher education who wish to learn more about leadership development (because they have been asked to take on these responsibilities, they wish to expand into this domain, and they are already working in this area); and Academic administrators who have been asked to include leadership development in their portfolios.
Outcomes: At the close of the Institute, participants will be able to identify: 1) strategic decisions in planning a leadership development program; 2) working definitions (leaders, leadership, leadership development); 3) leadership competencies; 4) models and examples; 5) resources (both online and hard copy); and 6) a preliminary plan for their leadership development efforts.
Format: The sessions will be highly interactive, interweaving the following approaches:
Short presentations of theory and research on leadership and leadership development; short presentations, institutional needs assessments and self-assessments of leadership style using leadership style instruments, and review of models and examples; application of participants’ SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analyses and on-campus interviews prior to attendance; and review of relevant models in small groups, enabling participants to plan and implement institutional plans.
