A free guide to help trustees and chief executives improve the leadership of their charities has been published this week.
Board leadership: A practical guide for the social sector, is produced by Clore Social Leadership, which provides training for leaders in the charity sector.
It covers areas such as finance, risk management, governance, and trustee recruitment, and is released as part of Trustees’ Week, which finishes today.
"This e-book is unique as it focuses on the leadership skills trustees need to manage and lead well," said Shaks Ghosh, chief executive from Clore Social Leadership. "What’s evident from this week's Charity Commission report is that it’s time to recruit the next generation of trustees, and we want to empower them."
The guide is based on Governance in the arts and museums: A practical guide commissioned for the cultural sector by the Clore Leadership Programme in 2016 with funding from Arts Council England and is written by Prue Skene, Keith Arrowsmith and Tom Wilcox.
