About this event

“To be a Successful Leader, Forget Everything you Think you Know!”

Targeted at Academic and Research Staff (Trinity College Dublin)

This is The Annual Irish Universities Training Network Leadership Initiative (comprising IUA Training network, RCSI and TU Dublin), this event is sponsored by Trinity College Dublin.

This year our speaker Domhnaill Hernon PhD will talk to about his journey and his interpretation of Leadership.

In this talk he will share his own experience and observations on how the ways of doing things (aka culture) in academia and industry might be holding us back from reaching our potential. Here’s a hint - it’s not about algorithms or frameworks or paradigms or models or data or publications - it’s all about the most complex thing in the universe……..people.

Dr Hernon has had the privilege of working with some of the great intellectual minds in academia and industry. The people that are extremely successful (the top 1%) think and act differently to the other 99% in just a couple of distinct ways. Highlighting from his own personal journey he discovered that even with all his education and experience he still had major blind spots when it came to working with people – especially in deriving maximum value from his own effort by leveraging collaboration and how he helped others reach their potential as a leader.


In accordance with the University Equal Opportunity Policy, the Learning and Organisation Development Team aims to provide accessible facilities for all staff.  Please let us know if you have any specific needs so we can be as accommodating as possible.


The IUTN was set up in September 1992 with the aim of encouraging and promoting collaborative development and training initiatives amongst all Irish universities.
