Leadership development model
The Clore Social leadership development model underpins everything we do. In this video, we describe what it is and how it can help you to support you on your leadership journey.
Leadership Development Model
Know yourself, be yourself, look after yourself
Leadership development must start with self-awareness. The most successful leaders critically assess their strengths, weaknesses, motivations and values. Leadership is tough, so it is also important to build physical and emotional resilience, and look after their own wellbeing so they can respond effectively to leadership challenges.
Assess & sense context
Social sector ‘systems’ are rapidly changing. We live in a dynamic world that is transforming our workplaces, politics, ethics and communities. To meet these demands, social leaders need to understand the complexities of changing systems. They must also be aware of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead to steer their teams and organisations, and make the most of what these changes offer.
Work with & through others
No leader exists or succeeds in isolation. Social skills and empathy are required to inspire, motivate and empower others, whilst respecting diversity and celebrating the power that difference brings. Working with and through others involves collaborating, forming partnerships, as well as inspiring and growing other leaders, all while making a positive social impact.
Governance, organisational capability & impact
Social leaders need to be able to build the relationships and infrastructure that are the conditions for others to create sustainable social impact. High-quality governance involves a clear vision for change and a culture of accountability to drive its delivery. Effective organisational capability provides the systems, structures and processes that support and sustain effective delivery. And robust impact culture ensures great dialogues about learning and improvement, to maximise prospects of creating impact for beneficiaries.
