Windsor Leadership Trust is making it possible for church and charity leaders to benefit from transformational leadership development programmes thanks to an Allchurches Trust Bursary Fund.
The programmes aim to support leaders as they develop their strategic thinking, explore their own leadership styles and consider the wider impact of their roles on society, with 96% of participants saying they are better able to lead with confidence after attending*. Thanks to the Allchurches' bursary, 18 Christian leaders have been able to attend programmes hosted by Windsor Leadership in the last two years that would otherwise be beyond their reach. Some 44% of people who have received a bursary have been BAME leaders and 56% are female.
“Windsor have inspired me in speaking up against unjust behaviour...to seek to transform unjust structures of society. My ministry with the RAF Air Cadets has also enabled me to invest my leadership talents in helping young people develop and grow into their full potential.”
Revd Father Kingsley Yeboah
“I am now focusing more on values and principles in my leadership style in the organisation rather than on grand visions which are time-consuming to craft and implement,” The Revd Douglas Tafara Machiridza (pictured above).
“The week long residential I attended was only part one of a two-part programme, but was the start of a longer journey. I already know the timing has been profound in helping to develop my understanding of how important it is for me to be more present, clarify and communicate a clearer vision and mission, as well as how to recruit a team,” Niky Dix (pictured below), CEO of charity, Intentional Health.
