Managers' Toolkit

Before browsing our short guides below, you may find it helpful to complete the analysis of needs checklist.  This covers the contents of the Toolkit so you can decide which topics are likely to be priorities for you.  We envisage the checklist being completed during the first few weeks of you taking up your new role.

The guides are sorted into three topic areas below, and are based on POD's leadership framework which describes the skills and behaviours that many colleagues across Oxford say are of value here.  Alternatively you may wish to browse the full list of guides.
