Andrew Barnett has been the director of the UK Branch of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation since 2007 and is the Convenor of the Funders’ Collaboration on the Leadership.
Social sector leadership is an issue that’s close to my heart. I’ve worked with some exceptional individuals during my career: passionate and empathetic, thoughtful and strategic, collaborative, outward looking, with vision and foresight. They’ve not just been effective; they’ve been an inspiration to me.

John Williams is Vice Chair at the Association of Chairs.
It’s been a tough 12 months for Chairs and trustees. The charity sector has faced unprecedented challenge and criticism, and much of it has focused on apparent failings in governance and leadership. Chairs especially are under pressure to ensure their boards are responsible and effective, while continuing to deliver the maximum impact for their beneficiaries.

Martin Crewe is Director, Barnardo’s Scotland.
‘Are you a brilliant public speaker?’
As chief officers of voluntary organisations there is increasing pressure on us all to be ‘great communicators’, so it’s a pretty loaded question.

Blog by Shoshana Boyd Gelfand, Director at JHub and speaker at Clore Social residential – May 2016
“She has issues with authority.” That’s what my second grade teacher told my parents after I led my classmates in a minor mutiny around lack of snack choices. My parents weren’t sure whether to be delighted at my leadership potential or terrified that I was going to get kicked out of primary school for challenging authority!

Resilience as a core leadership skill is all the rage at the moment, probably because we're all running on empty, particularly in the social sector. When I facilitate workshops with Clore Social Leadership, I use a timeline exercise with the Fellows and short course participants. Using a piece of A3 paper, we draw our leadership career as a timeline, with highs and lows either side of a line across the page. Highs are personal bests, and lows are when we have really struggled.

Blog by Prue Skene, Leadership in Governance facilitator and Clore Leadership Programme Governance Associate.
I’ve led on board development for the Clore Leadership Programme for the cultural sector for some eight years now, and during that time have worked with dozens of arts boards. I’m now about to take some of that expertise and experience into the social sector, swapping from cultural to social leadership and devising a Clore Social Leadership workshop for Chairs and CEOs attending as pairs.

Blog by Emily Sun: Catalysing and Leading Change short course facilitator and HR specialist.
I’m certainly not the first to write that the UK’s social sector is facing significant and disruptive challenges: decreases in public funding sources, increased pressure to deliver measurable outcomes and results, and an unprecedented knock in the public’s trust in the sector as a whole. The demands on leaders within the sector are greater than ever, and the ability to lead change effectively is becoming an increasingly critical skill.
