Everyone seems to be claiming they are community-led, or that they support community leadership, or telling others they ought to do it. But what does being community-led actually look like on the ground? How do you make it work? What are the pitfalls and contradictions? How do you sustain it? Is it more of a frame of mind or must it be a formal process? Is it, indeed, always desirable?
Building on the past 18 months of similar sessions, as well as the themes emerging from our recently launched Secret Community Leader column, Bob will host an honest ‘warts and all’ conversation that cuts through the rhetoric so we can help each other deal with the practical challenges of making community leadership work.
