Thursday 5 March 2020 marked the end of Clore Social’s 2019 Experienced Leader Programme, a year-long course which saw over 40 social leaders embark on a thought-provoking and challenging journey of leadership development.
With a blended approach to learning, the programme offered leaders from across the social sector the opportunity to participate in individual coaching, peer learning, secondments, action learning sets, online courses, and more - all designed to enhance self-awareness, generosity, and collaborative social leadership skills.
Building on five successful years of partnership, we were delighted to continue our collaboration with Forces in Mind Trust who generously funded six specialist fellowships for experienced leaders working within the Armed Forces Charity Sector. We talked to some of our Armed Forces Charity Fellows, to find out more about how this programme has helped strengthen leadership in their sector.
Through building relations and networks within and across sectors, some Fellows say the programme offered the opportunity to gain a wider perspective on social leadership and learn from others’ experiences.
“I loved the people, the residentials and the opportunity to share learning in a protected environment. It was great to experience everybody else’s experience and learn from them.” - Stephen Richards, Head of Adoption, Special Needs and Disability, SSAFA
