THRIVE Leadership in Research Programme
Prof. Ernesto Vasquez del Aguila has been selected as one of thirteen early to mid career UCD academics to participate in the THRIVE Leadership in Research Programme. The new "THRIVE - Leadership in Research" 2022 Programme is a joint initiative between UCD People and Organisation Development and UCD Research in consultation with the UCD training partner 64 Million Artists. This important programme is built around personal engagement with the strategic aims of UCD’s "Rising to the Future 2020-2024" and "Shaping the Future" strategies.
The programme, involving a combination of five modules and one to one coaching, will equip participants with the skills, knowledge, behaviours and confidence needed to realise their ambitions in UCD. Utilising a holistic approach, it provides a significant opportunity for Assistant Professors/Lecturers and Associate Professors across all disciplines to develop leadership and innovation skills in a group environment with peer-to-peer collaboration and networking.
THRIVE has seven key areas for participants’ personal development:
- Defining & Building Strengths
- Leadership & Management
- Collaboration & Co-creation
- Cultural Democracy
- Resilience & Wellbeing
- Professional & Personal Goals
- Taking Action
The programme modules will be delivered over the first half of 2022 with one to once coaching taking place in March and May 2022.
