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.

Homelessness: Lessons from the US

Posted on August 26, 2016
Posted by LĂ­gia Teixeira
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.

Posted by Guest Blogger

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.

What will a Fellowship do for you?

Posted by Jenny Ruth O'Hara-Jakeway
Fellowship: 2015

2015 Fellow Jenny O’Hara Jakeway is CEO of Credu: Connecting Carers, a charity that supports carers in Wales. She was appointed to this position at the same time as starting her Clore Social Fellowship. 

CEOs don’t tend to have a lot of support when they join new places. Luckily for me, being part of the Fellowship meant I had support from day one to do my job, and I was able to immediately use what learned from the programme by bringing it back to the organisation.

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.
