My friend and colleague Andy Jenkins is a leadership coach, with experience of developing leaders in the worlds of education, government, and business. He has kindly partnered with me to offer free leadership development workshops to choir leaders.
The sessions below will be interactive, looking at specific aspects of leadership. They will help you define your leadership style, encourage you to examine HOW you get people to do what they need to do, identify how you can build on your strengths and shore up any weaknesses, and so much more.
Each session will work on two paired aspects of leadership. They'll be delivered over Zoom. All of this is free - after a long career supporting leaders across the country, Andy is keen to give something back to the community. He's been a key component in the success of my choir, and I'd recommend these workshops to anyone leading any kind of choir, at any stage of your choir leading journey - you're bound to find something that helps you take your next step forward, whatever that may be.
Each session will run for one hour. All times are UK BST. Register using the links below - once you've registered, you'll receive the Zoom log-in details.
