Is the monkey lifting?

I went into the Clore Social Fellowship with a definite monkey on my back. One year into the Fellowship, has it loosened its grip?

'I Haven't Seen a Drop, Never Mind a Trickle': Economics and TTIP, the View From Bradford

Posted on December 11, 2014
Posted by Ruth Bergan
Fellowship: 2013

Proponents of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) use a simple formula to argue for the deal: more open trade leads to more growth which leads to more jobs.

One of the many reasons why this is problematic is that it says nothing about how projected impacts of TTIP - 0.5% growth and 0.7% job dislocation across the EU - will be distributed.

Unspoken truths: How to make a social leader shift uncomfortably in their seat

Posted on December 10, 2014
Posted by Vanessa Lye
Staff

Down a small side street near Liverpool Street Station sits Sandy’s Row Synagogue, a wood-panelled world that has existed for over 150 years. It used to hold one of the largest Jewish congregations in East London in 1881 and though the congregation has dwindled it is still an important place of worship and community.

I'm ok with being an assertive leader

Posted on November 11, 2014
Posted by Jane Bruce
Fellowship: 2014

How self-esteem and assertiveness are part of the delicate balance of being a great leader.

People in leadership positions have high levels of self-esteem right? After enjoying a course that examined the relationship between self-esteem and influencing I’m not so sure.

Finding the neutral zone and failing fast

Posted on November 5, 2014
Posted by Tom Doust
Fellowship: 2013

The social sector is full individuals with unparalleled compassion for and dedication to the improvement of society. That dedication, however, often leaves little room for reflection or horizon scanning. Unlike the private sector, the social sector struggles to find the time and resources to provide good training, the creative space to develop new thinking or the ‘fail fast’ philosophy to prototype new ideas. Not only does the nature of the sector generate little appetite for a culture of risk taking, but social impact measures leave little room for learning through failure.

My mistake cost my charity four members of staff and my pride

Posted on October 30, 2014
Posted by Eugenie Teasley
Fellowship: 2014

A tech social enterprise I co-founded ran out of money. It was my fault. And I had to make four people redundant. I’ve never had to deal with that before, and I was overwhelmed with shame and guilt.

I’ve morphed from puppy dog to hang dog over the past few months. At the third and final residential for the Clore Social Leadership programme, I arrived feeling pretty low. It’s been a tough, old summer.

How to prepare for being on Newsnight

Posted on October 10, 2014
Posted by Zubeda Limbada
Fellowship: 2014

Last week I received a phone call at 8pm asking me if I’d like to appear on Newsnight at 10.45pm. I was invited to respond to Teresa May’s speech on Banning Orders for extremist and other counterterrorism measures.  Our social enterprise ConnectJustice often deals with issues of extremism and counterterrorism, particularly its impact on communities. I had a few internal conversations as to whether I was prepared to speak in front of an audience of 600,000, but despite my nervousness I said yes.

Research project: What's the difference between teaching and leading?

Posted on October 1, 2014
Posted by Eugenie Teasley
Fellowship: 2014

As part of my Clore Social Fellowship I undertake a research project, and I’ve decided to explore the intersection of teaching and leading. After some initial thinking on my own, I still have a lot of work to do to narrow it down into a feasible project.

My intention is to identify three key areas of pedagogical theory that have relevance to leadership beyond the classroom, and then to interview a cross section of 6–8 successful leaders in the social sector to explore whether or not these theories have a practical application in their own leadership methodology and style.

Scaring myself, and doing it anyway

Posted on September 24, 2014
Posted by Michael Cooke
Fellowship: 2014

As everyone knows, there is nothing in human wisdom that cannot be found in a 90s music lyric. Baz Lurman’s 1998 classic Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen), itself musical interpretation of a Mary Schmich column in the Chicago Tribune, is more packed than most. It includes the line “Do one thing every day that scares you”. I’ve rather enjoyed the opportunity that the Clore Social programme has given me to put this into action.
