This year we will be sharing stories and insights through our global network about leadership in operational excellence. Too often, we think about organizations in terms of systems rather than people with unique strengths. 

Facilitating collective action 

Humentum will facilitate peer-to-peer and inter-organizational learning throughout 2020 to support individual leadership and collective action around critical issues. This will include a continued emphasis on our industry partnerships and cross-sector learning. 

Insights from CEOs and Executives across the globe

We’re collaborating with Lynne Gilliland, Executive Consultant and Coach, on the global launch of her Lessons from Leaders series. Lynne’s insightful conversations with leaders from organizations including Oxfam America, Catholic Relief Services, IREX, and ACDI/VOCA, highlight the human side of leadership. 

The critical link between failure and scalable success

Lynne’s series explores what it means to fail (spoiler alert: it’s hard for everyone, but essential for future success). We’re also reminded to enjoy the journey – many of us are in a hurry, so let’s appreciate the climb. 

Leadership and trust as enablers of collective action 

We turn the microphone over to Lynne to learn about steps leaders can take to build a culture of trust in the NGO sector, as well as what she views as the top areas for leadership development in our sector in the next five years. More to follow – stay tuned for an upcoming Q&A video!

Harnessing learning from guest bloggers

Amplifying the many voices in this sector is key to building a culture of inclusiveness and trust. As part of our mission to deepen and strengthen our advocacy of the sector, and to listen more closely to topical issues, we invite submissions to our blog on relevant topics affecting NGOs and non-profit organizations globally.

What else can you expect from us? 

Get to know our CEO, Dr Christine Sow, as she shares what inspired her to join the sector and her thoughts on Humentum’s role in thought leadership. This month Chris Proulx, our Global Director of Membership Learning and Engagement, also explores the nuances of generosity in leadership.

Until then, leave a comment, share widely and don’t forget to tag us using #Humentum2020!
