Tues 27th September 2022, 5pm to 6pm. Come along to hear and discuss the untapped opportunities of charity earned income, and why now it’s more pressing than ever.
Every radical new idea, every transformational opportunity, will generate objections. And in every objection, there will be text and subtext.
Certain words can make people within charities uncomfortable, but more importantly, can become a barrier that stops them engaging with the opportunities they represent.
The “drama triangle” can be a surprisingly thought-provoking model for shining a light on interpersonal dynamics. But also, perhaps, for thinking about the philosophy of a sector struggling to change.
It’s hard to be dispassionate and objective, let alone radically honest, when it comes to a charity’s services, but be honest – what do you actually, incrementally, bring to the party… if anything?
I’m constantly told by Chairs and CEOs they want their organisations to become more agile, embrace learning and innovation, and for their leaders to be operating far more strategically. So here’s what to do…
It’s often said that strategy is as much about choosing what not to do, as it is about choosing what to do. And in a complex world with expansive thinking, that array of possibilities can be bewildering.
The call over recent months for a full return to office-based working shows not just a lack of vision but a profound failure of leadership to adapt.
We can get far more from our in-person interactions than mere productivity. We can get ideas, inspiration, creative thinking. We can get a space to genuinely bounce off and explore. We can get a time, just to talk.
