Nothing! This is a no-cost programme. All we ask for is your time, energy and commitment! But because we believe in a challenge we will ask you to raise £500 for your charity over the course of the year you work with them.
Committing to the programme means you will attend bi-monthly workshops (which equates to 7 days) spread over a year. You will also need to commit the equivalent of one hour a week (which could be done as two hours every fortnight, or four hours once a month) to support your chosen charity. Of course you may want to do more, but this is all we ask you to commit to.
The benefits of attending the programme are not exhaustive. We’ve highlighted the main ones here:
This programme is suited to middle managers with people and budgetary responsibilities and who want to move into more senior leadership roles. However, we have taken on high-potential junior leaders and conversely more experienced leaders who wish to challenge their assumptions about how to lead and refresh their skills.
We do select people for the Fellowship as places are limited using the above criteria, but if in doubt, please contact us.
Our world seems ever more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous – and this brings daunting challenges for leaders and can create fear and anxiety in communities.
We believe the best way to respond to these challenges is to develop leaders who take an interest in the world around them, who invest in building their local communities, and who have the skills and aptitudes required to deliver sustained organisational success.
We’ve always been involved with supporting charities and this was a way of bringing leaders and charities together to really make a difference!
The simple answer is yes! Last year, one of the charities saw an impact worth approximately £30,000. And the fellows are still engaged with them now, with one of them being appointed as a trustee.
Nothing – we just think it’s important.
