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.

How do you lead a small team with the impact of a large one?

Posted on September 21, 2016
Posted by Guest Blogger

Amber Sainsbury is the CEO and Founder of Dramatic Need, a creative arts charity that helps vulnerable African children. The charity will celebrate their 10th Anniversary in 2017.

Leadership is - to me - much more about asking for help than passing on instructions. And it isn’t just about inspiring people that your cause is valid. Not everyone will be sold on an idea through your personal conviction.

Nurturing a new type of leadership

Posted on September 16, 2016

Stephen Clare is a third sector business adviser and coach, and Director of Cyta Consultancy Ltd. Previously he was Deputy Chief Executive of Locality.

What is leadership?  Such a simple question, and yet it has generated thousands of books and an industry in its own right.  Everywhere managers are told that they need to be leaders – but leadership is nothing to do with seniority or one’s position in the hierarchy of an organisation.

Generous leadership

Dawn Austwick is Chief Executive of Big Lottery Fund

Anyone interested in the role and nature of leadership will not have been short of food for thought lately. The recent referendum debated at length Britain’s role on the world stage – with both sides keen to paint a picture of leadership either within or without the EU. In that debate, we will rarely have seen a more eclectic array of personalities seeking to burnish their own leadership credentials.

Awkward bedfellows and slippery concepts a.k.a. How to lead social change

Posted on September 6, 2016
Posted by Guest Blogger

Dr Henry Kippin is executive director of Collaborate an independent CIC focusing on the thinking, culture and practice of cross-sector collaboration.

Leadership is a slippery concept.  A verb, not a noun.  A spirit, not a skillset.  It is a term that is broad and deep enough to mean both everything and nothing. But there is no doubt that if leadership matters (as Richard Harries’s excellent paper suggests), then we need to strive to make sure that the concept can hold the weight we ascribe to it.  This means we need to work on it.

Fellowship: 2016

Lígia Teixeira is Head of Research and Evaluation at Crisis, and our 2016 specialist housing and homelessness Fellow, supported by the Oak Foundation.  

Last week’s long awaited report from the Communities and Local Government Committee makes a number pertinent observations, including a call for a new Government strategy. Against a background of rising homelessness in most parts of England, the time is right to consider where we go from here and to look elsewhere for inspiration. There is much to learn from the United States.

Social sector leadership is an issue that’s close to my heart.
