Dealing with your organisation’s ‘lone wolves’

From 16:00 to 17:00 on 7th October 2020

Online event

Cost: £10.00

An online workshop to support chief executives in a safe environment at this difficult moment.

How can we, as leaders and trustees, tackle the emerging organisational and societal enemies that are around us?

In this session, we will consider emerging and potential lone wolves: the invisible organisational and societal enemies that are around us. Some we may share – for example, the prospect that the pandemic becomes a prolonged crisis as waves of disease rock the globe for longer than we are prepared – while others may be particular to our business.

Lone wolves can be just out of sight and everywhere; some might be visible to a few of us but unseen by others. We will get to know our lone wolves in a cathartic look at how bad it can it get and begin to explore strategies to find and create safe paths out of the present into the future, together, using our strength in numbers while keeping all eyes on the shadows.

Hold the Space online workshop and discussion series
We at Creative Help are offering a new series of six conversations with the title of Hold the Space. We want you to hold a regular monthly slot in your diary (October – March, First Wednesday @ 4pm) and thematically we will “hold the space” to support chief executives in a safe environment for open and confidential dialogue. Please note, you don’t have to be a CEO – you could be a trustee or chair who is looking to better support your CEO.

Who are we?
At Creative Help, we love to help people and places create. We are a consultancy practice born of a deep-seated belief in social justice and the ability of people and businesses to transform lives and communities. We believe you have the answers to your challenges and our role is to take a creative approach to support your expertise through facilitation, coaching and consultancy. We also recognise that simply providing practical targeted creative help may be best for you, because sometimes just a little extra resource to jump the hurdle is enough.
