Building leadership strength of growing social enterprises
Solving a complex social problem mostly demands passionate leadership & capable organisations. However, there is a visible gap of management capacity at most organizations with a social mission. Leadership at NGOs and social enterprises are often constrained by a lack of experienced executives who can support organizational growth. Moreover, there is a dearth of programs that support the professional development of key executives of growing organizations. This often leads to stretched leadership that struggles with managing organizational growth.
GYAN+, an initiative of iVolunteer & supported by Singapore International Foundation – is an Organization Management and Leadership development program that aims to strengthen the management capacity of growing development organisations by through training and mentoring focused on the key executives of such organisations. Given the time constraints that the executives already face, the program is structured with a short contact training followed up with ongoing mentoring support.
