Earlier this year CO3 held the 2012 Leadership Awards which recognised the excellent work of leaders who work in the voluntary and community sector; making a real difference to civic society. These leaders, their organisations, staff and volunteers are providing vital services right across Northern Ireland.
This innovative 5 day programme, supported by Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland, will take place between January and March 2013 The programme will be closely linked to CO3’s acclaimed publication ‘Excelling as Chief Officers” which sets out the core competencies for Leaders in the Third Sector. The Programme is suited to the needs of leaders of both large and small organisations in the Sector.
CO3 organisations have faced many exciting yet difficult challenges which have lead to changes in direction, structures and teams. During major change, team dynamics can be affected both positively and negatively. This can have a significant effect on the team and individuals themselves which can impact on organisational performance and sustainability.
This seminar will help leaders to review their organisations’ current financial position with tools to strengthen sustainability and resilience in an uncertain funding environment and in light of their strategic plans.
Date & Time: 25 October 2012, 9.30am – 1pm Venue: 34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast Cost: £45 CO3 Member £65 Non Member
Most third sector organisations have a strategic plan these days, but the evidence suggests that in most cases the plans are of little use in guiding the development of the organisation, or helping to make difficult decisions. The process of drawing up the plan, also often leaves many people who will be delivering the plan less than enthusiastic. This workshop will ensure that your strategic and operational planning processes enable your organisation to achieve its potential.
