Leadership makes a significant difference in any organisation, either positively or negatively. Due to popular demand we are pleased to run another series of The 6 Dimensions of Leadership programme.

The 6 Dimensions of Leadership is a virtual professional development programme aimed at emerging leaders within Music Services and Music Hubs. The programme comprises of 6 modules, with each module consisting of two 3-hour online workshops.  Each module and workshop has been specifically designed around developing an inquiry-approach into effective organisational leadership. Attend a session at any time or sign up to all six.

The programme is led by Andy Hind, from Enhancing Learning, run by Music Mark and supported by Arts Council England.

Participants on The 6 Dimensions of Leadership programme will engage in a carefully designed professional learning community (PLC) and will explore aspects of leadership in a learning organisation. The role of leader, at every level of an organisation, has changed beyond recognition with the focus now being on capacity building and continual improvement.   The role has changed from one of maintenance to authentic leadership and individuals are expected to step-up to this role.

The 6 Dimensions of Leadership programme focuses on building a deep understanding about leadership and seeks to support delegates in developing the essential competencies, behaviours and attitudes required to successfully lead a team/organisation.  It will explore the 6 minds of intelligent leadership and how to embed these within an individual’s leadership approaches

The 6 Dimensions of Leadership programme will support individuals in developing a deeper understanding about:

  • Differences between leadership and management
  • Knowing the purpose – Understanding the ‘why’ of leadership
  • Essential qualities, characteristics and behaviours of an inspiring leader
  • A leader’s impact on continual improvement and capacity building
  • Moving from workgroups to teams
  • Creating a culture for success
  • How leaders influence service outcomes
