Experienced Leader participant, Ed Tytherleigh, Chief Executive of Stoll, writes about his journey through the programme.
My career in the charity sector began as a volunteer 23 years ago. I absolutely loved that first experience – it was in a Drop-in Centre for homeless people in Manchester. Since then, I have led three charities, and after 13 years’ experience of being a Chief Executive, I now appreciate the importance of continuous learning.
I joined the Experienced Leader Programme to absorb as much knowledge as possible. I already have an MBA, and I wanted to keep learning and challenging myself.
I can safely say, I feel more confident and accomplished after taking part in the programme. It made me step back and look at my own leadership, influence and approach more objectively. I now spend more time discussing my team members’ leadership journeys and have definitely experienced a step change in terms of how I empower those around me.
