Helen and I were invited by Tearfund to do an in-house workshop on Host Leadership at the end of 2013. Tearfund is a Christian development agency, passionate about ending poverty. We went down to their base in Teddingon and had a fantastic day exploring what it means to lead through hosting, our new six roles for a host leader and other new developments (more soon).
The feedback was very good indeed on the day. Afterwards, I recieved an email from one of the participants, a Campaigns Officer, who wrote:
“Thank you for leading such a brilliant, inspiring, thought provoking and deeply practical day yesterday. I loved it and it resonated so much with both my working and non working journey and stage of life. Just Brilliant.
I found it both amusing and fascinating that yesterday’s Thought for the Day was on the very theme we were exploring! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01mflzq ”
The Thought for the Day is well worth a look! We will be offering more workshops next year, so please sign up here for information and also join the Host Leadership Community for lots of discussions and new book chapters coming soon!
