Preparing for PDR? The Loughborough Leadership Framework could help

The Performance and Development Review period runs from January – March 2017. All staff are reminded these must be completed by the end of March. If you do not currently have a PDR date set, please discuss this with your line manager or agreed reviewer.

The review provides staff with a valuable opportunity to reflect on their experiences at work over the past 12 months. The process enables staff to receive constructive feedback on their performance and discuss their objectives going forward, aligned with the University Strategy, ‘Building Excellence’.

Members of staff are encouraged to use the Loughborough Leadership Framework online self-assessment as part of their PDR preparation.  It is open to all staff - not just those currently in a leadership role - but those who have aspirations to take on a leadership role, or have leadership elements within their role (for example, programme directors or project managers) will really benefit from using the tool.

The Loughborough Leadership Framework has been developed to help you identify the strengths you have in specific leadership attributes. It will help you and your PDR reviewer identify the leadership development that would be appropriate for you.

The questionnaire should be completed once a year before your PDR (the closer to the date of your PDR the better). The results will be discussed at your PDR so that any future leadership development needs can be identified and recorded.

You can access the Leadership Framework on the dedicated web page, where you can also find videos that explain the process further and describe how to get the most out of the tool.
