Becoming a Leader

This article focuses on executive leadership and identifies what individuals need to do to understand and develop their roles as leaders in higher education. Individuals need to develop their knowledge and experience of leadership, develop their self-awareness about their own practice as a leader and their impact on others, understand the internal and external contexts in which leadership is practised, learn about the roles, tasks and responsibilities of leadership and find formal and informal ways to develop their practice. There are now a wide range of resources available to assist in developing leadership capabilities at individual level and leadership capacity at national and institutional levels.
