Our Aspiring Leaders programme (formally known as Community Champions) is part of our Leading in Leicester and Leicestershire and Reaching People project.
This programme is for those who are passionate about their cause and enjoy getting involved in helping individuals and local organisations change things for the better. A person who steps up without hesitation when the community needs help and who has the potential to flourish and have even greater impact with some support, guidance and training.
It is designed to help you grow your confidence in dealing with people through understanding your leadership behaviours, empower you through self-awareness and help you build your ability to make a difference in your community or organisation. You will discover various models for understanding your environment and how to deliver change in an effective manner. All this starts with understanding that leadership is within us all and with the right guidance we can grow as individuals and community leaders.
Our sessions will run a monthly basis with a total of 6 sessions. This is a great opportunity to meet others and expand your network whilst reflecting on your own leadership style and impact as a team and individual.
*Please be aware that as this is a course provided free of charge, we do expect you to be able to make all sessions. Failure to do so may result in a fine. As part of this course, we also ask that 3 evaluations be filled out at different parts of this course. These are the only 2 requirements of this course and we hope that you are able to accept them.
