Clore Social Leadership has announced today details of its 2020 Cobseo Emerging Leader Programme aimed at building effective leadership and better collaboration for those working in the Armed Forces and Service Charities sector.
Together with Clore Social Leadership, the Emerging Leader Programme has been designed in partnership with the Confederation of Service Charities (Cobseo) and the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT). It aims to help leaders become more empowered, focused, and generous.
Prema Nirgude from The Royal Air Forces Association and 2019 Cobseo Emerging Leader Fellow said: "The Programme has enabled me to be in a better position to influence change. It has also helped me to empower those people around me who make up the organisation. I would definitely recommend the Programme. I have learnt a lot about myself that will help me throughout my career."
The Programme offers a blended approach which allows for self-directed learning, while providing the opportunity to work together with a group of peers who will support, challenge and inspire each other.
James Grant from SSAFA and 2019 Cobseo Emerging Leader Fellow emphasised the benefits of working and learning with other leaders, "Impartial advice from others is incredibly powerful and that’s been the single most effective thing on this course. It wouldn’t have happened had we not all been on this together and we’re going to stay in touch and keep doing it."
This was supported by Kath Lawrence, from The SCiP Alliance and 2019 Cobseo Emerging Leader Fellow, who added:
