After 12 months of learning and growing as part of The Growth Project, the leaders put their minds to work and produce a collection of their thoughts, learnings and advice. The book is referred to as 'Ripples'. Ripples is filled with collaborative contributions from charities and business leaders who have travelled The Growth Project journey together. Through Ripples these partnerships share their collective most valuable insights.
The Growth Project delivers through an innovative personal development program that brings together charity and business leaders in an environment of shared learning. Throughout the 12-month course, participants share knowledge and experiences, learn how to run more effective and efficient organisations and develop their leadership skills.
It has a footprint that is embedded in strengthening partnerships across charity and business leaders. This partnership action is a direct result of The Growth Projects broad outcome of promoting ‘collaborative learning between charity and business leaders that benefits society’.
The program is an innovative personal and professional development program that brings together 10 charity leaders and 10 business leaders for each intake. The charity and business leaders are paired, and together they participate in eight group learning session over a 12-month period.
The program aims to deliver knowledge and experiences that enables participants to have greater positive impact that benefits society. In the spirit of partnership the charity and business leaders are matched in a ‘buddy’ shared learning approach. The eight group-learning sessions are designed to help charity leaders drive efficiencies and effectiveness within their charity. Business leaders attend the eight group sessions and work with their charity leader, taking their leanings back into their organisation.
The Growth Project has selected Goal 17 of the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals to support and “strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development”.
