Leadership is for everyone

2017 was a groundbreaking year for us.

In June we were awarded a grant of almost half a million from the Big Lottery Fund to be a facilitator for leadership in the sector. We diversified our offer, launching a new series of leadership programmes for 2018 for leaders of all levels. We ran successful events with our partners the House of St Barnabas, expanded our digital footprint with new online-only programmes and offered free online resources for new managers and trustees. And the year is not yet over! This week we announce exciting news about our new HEY100 leadership programme for leaders in Hull and East Yorkshire.

Looking ahead to the New Year, I have no doubt that 2018 will engender an even bigger growth spurt as we strive ahead with our mission to transform social sector leadership by developing skilled and ethical leaders. These are leaders who can meet present-day challenges head-on, who have the foresight to predict future trends along with the agility to maximise opportunities.

Social justice is not the preserve of the social sector

Increasing awareness of civic duty is a core aim of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation report, Rethinking Relationships: Phase One of the Inquiry into the Civic Role of Arts Organisations.

Society has become fragmented – a lot of the things that used to bring us together don’t exist anymore. We have reached a point in society where our relationship with our phones and technology often subsume our personal relationships, both with each other and within our communities.

Bridging the gap in the supply and demand of leadership development

As 2016 winds down, I find myself considering the fervent sector debates that have taken place over the year in the media and beyond. One thing is clear: strong leadership is more important than ever before, and the demands on leaders are increasingly complex.

What does the future hold for leadership development in our sector?

It seems to me that the pace of change in our sector is faster than it’s ever been. Change provides an opportunity to review the past; to understand what was useful and what could have been done differently. Change is also an opportunity for growth. In the midst of all this movement, we wanted to investigate social sector leadership development, and having already looked at the past in our first report, we now look to the future in our second report.

Leadership matters: provoking debate

Posted on August 2, 2016

Leadership matters. This is the first line taken from our new report Leadership Development in the Third Sector: Learning Lessons.

We all know that leadership in the sector is important, but what really matters is leadership that can navigate through choppy waters while simultaneously capitalising on new opportunities. Sounds relatively straightforward, but it isn’t.

Trust in the social sector: public perception or reality?

Posted on June 28, 2016

Perception versus reality is a poignant theme which many of us have been grappling with since the aftermath of the EU referendum. Do the referendum results illustrate the country’s real wish to leave the EU, or are we in the mire of a bigger, societal disconnection with how the public wants real change in the face of austerity and social inequality?
