This programme has been designed for leaders of Non-Governmental Organisations exploring the feasibility of enterprise models to enable a transition towards greater sustainability and impact.
10am - 4pm
Making the change to sustainability requires a mindset shift within organisations so that they can successfully adopt for-profit models that keep income and impact central to the mission – it’s an approach that requires bold and brave leadership.
During this programme you will explore what it means to have an entrepreneurial mindset in your organisation. The focus will be on the ‘WHY’ of your organisations and the balance/tension between profitability/sustainability and social impact/mission.
You will explore the leadership skills needed to empower others to be entrepreneurial and start planning for how you want to ‘show up as entrepreneurial leaders’ back in your organisation.
On this programme you will explore:
- Understand what it means to be enterprising, and the benefits and challenges of becoming more enterprising
- Explore the mind set and qualities to become more enterprising, and how to create an enterprising culture
- Understand Growth Tools
- Understand the difference between leadership and management
