Are you keen to develop your leadership skills? Do you have the desire to become a director of fundraising in the next 24 months? If the answer is ‘yes’ the IoF’s Future Leaders Programme could be for you.
Who is this programme for?
This programme has been designed to meet the needs of experienced fundraisers with the desire to become future heads or directors of fundraising. This programme offers the unique opportunity for you to develop the skills you need to take your career to the next level and build a network of peers to support you along the way.
What will you learn?
Each day is likely to consist of three parts:
1. Circle of Learning/Tracking Individual Development
Throughout the programme participants will be asked to consider their development objectives and reflect on progress.
2. Guest Speakers
Current Directors of Fundraising from both large and small organisations will share their insights on the role. Other guest speakers are likely to include former Directors of Fundraising who have become CEOs and recruitment consultants who specialise in hiring Directors of Fundraising.
Guest speakers for January - June 2020 are still being confirmed. To view guest speakers for previous and current cohorts, click here.
The following topics will be explored through the training:

Topic 2: Leadership Styles and Dealing with Politics
Topic 3: Coaching
Topic 4: Action Learning and De Bono’s 6 Thinking Hats
Topic 5: Influencing and Negotiation
Topic 6: Strategy and the Employee Life Cycle
In addition to the sessions, past and current participants will have the opportunity to enhance their networks by attending optional invitation only networking events. These networking events take place twice a year.
What is the level of commitment needed?
The programme runs over six consecutive months and consists of one full day per month starting January 2020 and ending June 2020. Participants need to commit to attend every session for the full day. Each session will be run at a central London location.
