RISE Leadership and People Management Programme
The RISE programme is designed for all Senior Leaders and People Managers across UCD.
This Leadership programme has been created to support the delivery of the UCD Strategy 2020-2024, 'Rising to the Future'. As per our strategy, we commit to rising to meet the global challenges of the future through the excellence and impact of our research, scholarship and innovation, while ensuring every member of our community is enabled to achieve their full potential.
RISE is delivered by our strategic partners Flow Group. The modules are designed to facilitate participants coming together to reflect and plan their individual and collective approaches to navigating an ever-changing and complex landscape, and each session includes personal reflection, action planning, small group conversation, idea generation and discussion.
This high impact programme is designed as a learning journey which consists of a number of modules which must be completed in sequence. Senior Leaders and People Managers will attend the Core Module together to share experiences and work to create common approaches and language. Each cohort will then attend their Essentials 1 and Essentials 2 modules in sequence.
The programme also offers RISE Insights Sessions on HR, Finance and Research Finance. These optional 90-minute offerings delivered by our UCD colleagues provide specialist advice and guidance. Insights Sessions can be attended at any time once you have completed your Core module.
RISE Peer Connect
These one-hour self-contained sessions connect peers in small groups, facilitating the continuation of learning and sharing among our diverse community of people managers and leaders. Each session is a new opportunity to gain new perspectives and challenge your thinking. A facilitator will guide the session, with a structured process allowing you to talk through challenges and share experiences with a group of colleagues. These sessions can be attended at any time throughout your RISE journey.
This two-minute video explains more about Peer Connect.
