Thank you

Thank you for joining us at the briefing day on 16th July.

Please direct any questions to Cleo Sheehan: cleo.sheehan@forward.institute. 

We hope you enjoy your exchanges and we look forward to seeing you at the debrief meeting from 2pm-5pm on 17th October.

The debrief meeting will be in central London, location TBC. We will be in touch with you closer to the time to let you know where it will be. 

LEAdership exchange: long Briefing

The Leadership Exchange is a structured observation exercise that will deepen your insight into the styles, practices and the actual process of  responsible leadership in different organisations. It involves observing and being observed.

Whilst the Exchange days provide the most novel, and perhaps intense aspect of the experience, please note that the preparation and the debrief stages are equally as important to the process.

You should start by reading the long briefing document to understand the full process: 

Preparatory exercises 

At the briefing day we used a few exercises to tune up your skills and awareness around listening and observing. You can find information on these exercises below:

during the exchange

Taken from the long briefing, the below 1-pager provides a reminder for your approach and responsibility in undertaking the observation of your partner.

After the exchange 

Once you have completed both parts of the Exchange, please write a 500-word (maximum) reflection paper on the experience.

This should be shared with your Exchange partner and the Forward Institute by end of the day, Friday 5th October 2018. Please email your exchange to: fellowship@forward.institute.
