Building Resilience

Three places are available in this online programme for leaders of organisations in the Toi Tōtara Haemata and Toi Uri Kahikatea investment programmes.

Update: Applications for Building Resilience have now closed.

There are three online modules and follow-up coaching sessions to help leaders put their thinking and plans into practice. The programme is provided by United Kingdom’s Arts Marketing Association (AMA) and UK brand agency Wolff Olins and supported by Arts Council England.

The modules are:

Module 1: Defining your purpose

This shares perspectives, ideas and case studies from the arts and commercial sectors to give participants an insight into how to shape and define a compelling vision and future direction. It is intended to inspire arts organisations to define a core purpose which can be shared across the organisation and drive everything that is done.

This module is led by Robert Jones, Head of New Thinking at Wolff Olins, with input from Andrew McIntyre, Director, Morris Hargreaves McIntyre.

Module 2:  Reviewing your business plan

This shares core principles for developing a resilient business model so a company can realise its purpose. You will be introduced to a tested business tool and receive insights, examples and a suggested process for reviewing, adapting or transforming a business model.

This module is led by Julie Aldridge, Executive Director, AMA.

Module 3:  Driving a high performing organisational culture

You will explore what makes an effective team and the role of the leader in influencing and shaping this. By creating an environment of ‘adaptive resilience’ you can foster a mindset where there is little or no desire to return to how it was. Instead, teams actively want to evolve, grow, shrink and reinvent themselves to achieve their shared vision.

This module is led by Mark Wright, Director, People Create Ltd.

Follow-up support – two-hour, one-to-one coaching sessions

You can choose from one of the following expert coaches:

  1. Robert Jones: offering online mentoring relating to module one.
  2. Andrew McIntyre: offering online mentoring relating to module one or an in-house session looking at development of the organisations purpose /cause and their manifesto for a relevant and resilient future.
  3. Susan J Royce: offering online mentoring relating to module two – developing a resilient business model for the future.
  4. Mark Wright: offering online mentoring relating to module three – organisational culture and managing change.

“The online courses were created to inspire thinking about resilience within arts, culture and heritage organisations and to share best practice across the sector”  Julie Aldridge, Executive Director, AMA
