Duration: 2 hour Zoom course with break
People are at their best when they’re in relationship with each other. How can every aspect of organisational life become an opportunity for relationship-building, collaboration, teamwork – and high performance? This course will introduce you to the skills of community organising for charity leaders.
An organisation is only as strong as its people. Positive relationships between staff members, volunteers, service users and stakeholders lie at the heart of all successful charities. This session will introduce a powerful model of relational leadership, based on the tried and tested methods of community organising. We’ll think about our organisations as communities and learn how to build trusting, productive relationships by analysing our personal and organisational habits and behaviours.
