How volunteers can influence the future of leadership development

Posted on December 19, 2016
Posted by Guest Blogger

John Sennett is a volunteering spokesperson who runs the blog John's Road to Volunteering. He uses his experiences to influence change, motivate social action and to challenge strategy for leadership development.

 Who? What? When? How? Why?

These are the five questions I think about regularly when it comes to understanding the greater need of volunteer influence on infrastructure and development in the so called ‘hierarchy’ many charities take prime views on. When asked to read through Clore Social’s recent ‘Facing the future’ report, I wanted to put forward my personal outlook on the findings and thoughts.

Posted by Shaks Ghosh

As 2016 winds down, I find myself considering the fervent sector debates that have taken place over the year in the media and beyond. One thing is clear: strong leadership is more important than ever before, and the demands on leaders are increasingly complex.

We need to change the narrative on food poverty

Posted on December 9, 2016
Posted by Seb Mayfield
Fellowship: 2016

OK, I was wrong, and it took a fellowship to Canada in 2015 to realise it.

I have been involved in the food movement for a decade, specialising in building good food communities. I continue to see many benefits to putting good food at the heart of a community, including increases in social capital and benefits to mental and physical health.

What is good leadership?

Posted on December 1, 2016
Posted by Louise Drake

Joining Clore Social Leadership as the Director of Programmes and Leadership Innovation has given me the enviable role of meeting the social sector’s most ambitious and engaging leaders. Never more apparent than with the interviews for our 2017 cohort where they were asked  ‘What is good leadership?’

This is one of the toughest questions to answer, not only because one search of that question presents 48,700,000 results on Google, so there’s no ‘right’ answer.

The hidden problem of children who witness police home raids

Posted on November 9, 2016
Posted by Jo Tilley-Riley
Fellowship: 2015

This week saw the publication of my Fellowship research Collateral Damage. In it, I have sought to shine a light on the hidden problem of children who witness police home raids. These children, whose parents or siblings have committed crimes, are the unseen victims of those crimes, often left deeply traumatised by the raids, and overlooked by the police.

Posted by Isaac Abraham

Rushanara Ali MP was the latest speaker at our latest Leaders Now breakfast event last week, hosted at the House of St. Barnabas. Speaking to a group of social sector leaders, she opened up about her moments of vulnerability and the pressing need in post-Brexit Britain to create a culture that cultivates a diverse range of leaders.

The paradoxes of the modern leadership challenge

Posted on October 31, 2016

Steve McGuirk is the former County Fire Officer of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, and Chairman of Warrington and Halton Hospitals Foundation Trust.

This blog is written in response to Clore Social Leadership’s reports about third sector leadership development. Read report 1 here, and report 2 here.  

It has always been tough leading change in a challenging world, but there are an increasing number of factors that support the idea, ‘it’s never been like this before’.

This presents a huge number of paradoxes for people in any leadership position trying to figure their way through this complexity – but I think there are added layers for those leading social change.

The joy of making mistakes - ex Chief Inspector of Prisons shares his leadership insights

Posted on October 21, 2016
Posted by Iga Wojtasik

'People who never make mistakes never make anything. Leaders should not only be assessed by the successes they achieve, but how they handle their failures too. Social leaders should not be afraid to fail'.

This slightly counter intuitive statement was made by Prof. Nick Hardwick, who shared his leadership journey at Clore Social’s recent Leaders Now breakfast event.

On leadership and ostrich strategies

Posted on October 18, 2016
Posted by Cordelia Osewa-Ediae
Fellowship: 2015

One of my favourite leadership quotes from Peter Drucker - ‘Management is doing things right; Leadership is doing the right things’ - sums up how I see leadership. Leadership is often about tackling difficult but pertinent issues. With this in mind, my Fellowship research explores why social leaders must ensure they build inclusive workplaces which value diversity.
