Pathways to Leadership

Leading Together: Resources & Tools

Developing leadership behaviours is relevant to all of us, not simply managers or those in senior roles. The Leading Together framework is a developmental tool that describes the behaviours - at every level of leadership - that demonstrate our Queen Mary Values. 

The downloadable self-assessment tool, below, is particularly useful during the appraisal season. It’s designed to help you think about where you are in your career, and what you might do to get you to where you want to be.

Pathways to Leadership is for those aspiring to management or leadership roles, and offers a suite of development programmes aimed at supporting your progression. Have a look at the brochure below to find the right level for you.

Pathways to Leadership

Pathways to Leadership is a series of programmes to support colleagues at each stage of their career, no matter what their role.

These consist of five levels of core leadership programmes with “elective’ modules so that you can focus your learning on the areas you need to develop. Electives can be taken in addition to the core or as standalone sessions.

Pathways to Leadership develop the behaviours described in Leading Together. The Leading Together framework is a developmental tool that describes the behaviours - at every level of leadership - that demonstrate our Queen Mary Values. 

Please note that these programmes are not externally accredited.  If you are interested in accreditation, we recommend exploring staff apprenticeships.
