Coaching for Excellence: Awakening the Leader Within

The Individual Leadership Programme is designed to give you a 'fast-track' to increased confidence and competence in the third-sector CEO role. It will give you and your organisation a renewed sense of purpose and a clear way forward in ensuring behaviours and results which are consistent with your vision, values and strategic plans.

The Individual Leadership Programme can be completed at your own pace, over either a six or 12 month period. Rather than attending a series of workshop sessions with other participants, the Individual Leadership Programme involves one-on-one interventions via telephone, online or face-to-face.

The programme is delivered by First Position Performance Development and is only available to ACEVO members.

What does the programme offer?

  • A benchmark of your current competencies against a Model of Leadership Excellence using a 360' assessment with input from colleagues

  • Specialist performance coaching tailored to your individual development needs

  • An objective, confidential 'sounding-board' to share those moments of frustration, confusion or inspiration

  • Supportive yet provocative conversations with professional coaches who will ask challenging questions

  • Multiple touch-points to maintain momentum and focus on your personal and professional development 

What will I gain from the Individual Leadership Programme?

  • Increased self-awareness and valuable insights into how you think, how you engage with others and how you lead

  • Discover how your perception of your ability as a leader compares to the perceptions of your team and board

  • Gain new perspectives on familiar problems, seeing new possibilities and helping you remove barriers and get 'unstuck' more easily
