Our range of online support tools provide members with key learning to develop as civil society leaders.  

Leadership Development Planning

With the world moving ever faster, on-going leadership development supports you in your current role as well as helping you with any career progression (upwards or sideways) you might desire. Leadership development is all about upgrading knowledge, skills and capabilities. These in turn boost confidence, credibility, creativity and your ability to cope with ever increasing job pressures.

To support members in creating a plan for your leadership development, ACEVO has developed a suite of tools that you can use to reflect on your development needs. 

Formalising any learning activities you are already participating in will help you prioritise what’s important. It will then provide you with a tangible record of your professional development. This can be useful for individual reviews with your line manager or the Board. 

Tools available:

  • Leadership Development Questionnaire and Template Plan
  • Leadership Development Reflection Plan
  • Career Development Planner
  • Stakeholder Management Tool

Full members can also get support for developing your Plan from Jenny Berry, Director of Leadership Development. Jenny will help you further explore your needs and discuss where ACEVO or other resources can help you implement your plan. To arrange this please complete the Leadership Development Questionnaire, available on the Tools page.
