The Leadership Collection was inspired by, and initiated with support from and in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The Collection is a multi-media library of management and leadership materials curated for academic leaders, and is updated regularly with new resources. It can be used on a “just in time” basis (“I need to know now!”) or as a platform for personal study and reflection.

You don’t become a leader overnight, successful leadership development starts with a basic understanding of the self and the way people think. The purpose of this section is to focus on self-refection and assessment, to develop a better understanding of how people make decisions, and to consider what happens when you shift from being a peer to a leader.
Being in a leadership role includes navigating both the technical and social elements of the unit. Leaders need to understand how to navigate the daily processes of getting work done effectively, while also developing and motivating the other people in their unit. The purpose of this unit is to introduce the distinction between management and leadership, then to provide tools and guides for being an effective and ethical leader.
When you are leading a single unit or an entire organization, thinking strategically is required to understand the place of your unit or organization in the broader system. Instead of focusing on the individual processes, this section asks you to consider how to create a strategic vision and how to implement that vision with your people.
