Nourishing space for women running small to medium voluntary organisations
Starting February 27th – join up now!
How might things be different for you in 9 months’ time if you have regular support in an environment where everyone has particular skills and expertise that they share, and where there’s space and time to think, reflect, gather strength?
This is probably the most difficult and challenging period in modern times for small to medium charities and social enterprises, especially those working with vulnerable people. You are working long hours, multi-tasking, keeping your boards and management committees up to speed, and trying to keep your staff team healthy and buoyant. But who’s looking after you? And where do you find the space to think, reflect, share with others in a similar position?
I have created this monthly group with you and your needs in mind. Working in a group of up to 6 women, initially for 6 months, we will focus on:
|our challenges||our gifts|
|our issues||our shining futures|
Each session will have time and space for members to work on individual issues, as well as focusing on a specific theme. We may bring in guest speakers. I suggest the themes below, and more may emerge as we work together:
|*money – raising it and managing it||*meetings – making them work for you||*people|
I am mindful that your organisational budgets are severely stretched, and one of the first things to go is usually paying for your own support. Running the group from my home in South London will keep the costs down, and I can throw in lunch and a taxi service to and from the station. The cost for this pilot introductory programme of 6 sessions, each of 3 hours, will be £175.
I’m a qualified executive coach and member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. I have been running a successful coaching practice, working with charity CEOs and senior managers since 2010. I’m also CEO of Share Community and have worked as a senior manager in the voluntary sector since 1996.
We’re starting in February, and places are filling fast, so if you’re interested in finding out more, please e-mail me straight away at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Most sessions will be on Fridays, with the occasional Wednesday or Thursday.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
With very best wishes,
