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:

  1. Defining & Building Strengths
  2. Leadership & Management
  3. Collaboration & Co-creation
  4. Cultural Democracy
  5. Resilience & Wellbeing
  6. Professional & Personal Goals
  7. 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.
