Leading in uncertainty
Every week we run a free, 90 minute drop-in session for up to 10 charity leaders - a facilitated, peer support space. You can share challenges – like increasing or changing demand, taking care of your team (and yourself!) after a difficult year, blending online and face-to-face, and managing multiple balancing acts.
