New Social Leaders

A fresh and exciting development offer for emerging social leaders such as those in communities, charities and social enterprises.

As part of New Social Leaders, small groups come together online to build collaborative connections, share learning and grow as a result of a series of structured workshops and brokered connections.

New Social Leaders is for people who are passionate about releasing the potential of people, communities and organisations and who are inspired by the opportunity for change, but frustrated by the challenge required to get there. This could include people who have recently become a ‘team leader’, ‘senior’, ‘manager’ or something similar that involves leadership of others, or people who have been a leader for a few of years and are looking for ideas on how to do things differently.

Participants will learn alongside other likeminded, fresh thinking, values-driven leaders who believe in the potential of people and aim to make a positive difference. Outcomes of taking part in New Social Leaders include:

  • New techniques, ideas and tools to effectively lead and manage others with confidence.
  • New knowledge, techniques and motivation to work collaboratively with others, support local systems change, and improve outcomes for people and communities.
  • Access to ongoing peer support with likeminded new social leaders and brokered connections with senior leaders in the social sector.
