All too often volunteer leaders/trustees and employees in the non-profit sector can find themselves in management and leadership roles without having a full understanding of what such roles actually involve. Furthermore, it is frequently the case that no further training or support is offered to people in these demanding positions.  

The recently published OECD Skills Strategy for Ireland identified the need for continuous improvement of leadership and management skills within non-profit sector in Ireland. Strong leadership and management capabilities are important drivers of organisational change, helping to optimise the use of skills in workplaces and drive innovation, productivity and organisation performance. Previous studies have highlighted a need to improve management capability in Ireland, particularly among small and medium-sized enterprises. The OECD Strategy recommended extending flexible, subsidised, customisable development opportunities available to Ireland’s managers to maximise the accessibility, relevance and value of support: 

  • Address gaps in management training for mid-sized, locally traded service companies and community, voluntary and social enterprises. 
  • Advance new flexible, subsidised and customisable management training and scale up successful existing programmes. 

Target Audience

Board Members, CEOs, Managers, Members of Management Teams, or anyone interested in any of these roles.

Outline

Very often the structure within non-profit organisations is to have the CEO of the organisation lead a Management Team made up of Managers of certain functions within the organisation. Members of the Board hold all Managers & Staff to account through the CEO who reports directly to them. But what does it mean to be a Manager, and a member or a leader of a Management Team, or a Leader of a group of people on your Board?

This 3-part online Leadership Programme will be comprised of:

  • Leadership: From what makes an effective leader to developing your own leadership style.
  • Team Building: From what makes a highly functioning team to how to motivate teams and attract people to join them.
  • Developing your personal skills and getting access to tools for leadership, management and team building.

The schedule for this programme is:

  • Wednesday 11/09/2024 6:30pm-9pm
  • Wednesday 25/09/2024 6:30pm-9pm
  • Wednesday 09/10/2024 6:30pm-9pm
