Leadership Development: Transformative Leadership

The Transformative Leadership Programme has been running now for over a decade and is aimed at individuals in senior management and those who aspire to work in leadership roles in non-profit organisations. It is designed to help them deal with the complex realities of leading change in the non-profit sector. 

Over 100 people have already graduated through the Transformative Leadership Programme and many of these are now providing leadership in organisations across the community and voluntary sector.

Programme Structure

The programme contains four core modules: 

  • Personal leadership model building: focuses on enhancing effective leadership through a combination of personal and shared reflection, as well as practical skills development, theoretical inputs and group practice. 
  • Understanding and leading change: examines the complexities of advocating and leading change, including internal communications, fostering leadership in others and working with frameworks for change to develop a personal vision for leadership. 
  • Systemic change: provides a model for understanding organisational culture and how it relates to leadership; working creatively with conflict and diversity, exploring complexity theory and its relevance to leading systemic change. 
  • Building strategic alliances: includes training in collaborative working, policy and power mapping, as well as development of a personal leadership plan and networking for the future.

Programme Award

The programme is presented in collaboration with The Wheel, and leads to a Level 8 professional certificate in Community Education & Equality Studies from Maynooth University.
