For three days in early April, LSE's New Academic Building played host to thirty-six doctoral students and early career researchers from LSE, the Institute of Education and King's College London who were participating in Leadership in Action, a three-day intensive course designed to prepare researchers for leadership roles.
The experiential programme, pioneered by Vitae, gives participants the opportunity to lead small groups in a range of activities - from launching fundraising campaigns to running crisis headquarters during an urban terrorist attack - that develop key leadership skills such as negotiation, co-operation and decision making.
We'll be uploading more photographs and film from the event soon. Meantime, this Wordle was produced from what the participants and facilitators on the programme consider to be the core attributes of a good leader.
Leadership in Action 2012
This short film was made at a working lunch in June 2012, at which LSE's participants in Leadership in Action 2012 reflected on their experience of the programme.
