Active Leadership

  • Do you find your best ideas come to you away from your desk?
  • Does being active gets your creative juices flowing?
  • Do you really have to be sitting round a table to be networking?


As leaders we spend so much time sitting at our desks, or in meetings, that sometime we forget that fresh air and movement feeds the mind (and body). In 2017 ACOSVO launched an Active Leadership programme to support third sector leaders to de-stress, network, share & develop all while getting healthier and having fun. 


A few dates for your 2018 diary include:


  • An 'Active Learning' walk from Haymarket out towards Ratho, taking in the scenic canal, on January 16th to get those new year resolutions off to a good start.
  • The first of our North East Regional Network Leaders Lunches on June 7th have chosen to take part in an Active Leadership session instead of the usual sit down lunch (get in touch if you would like to lead an Active Leadership network in your area). 
  • 21st August is a cycle in Glasgow led by Cycling Scotland, book here!


Last, and by no means least, ACOSVO is joining EMMS International on a leadership cohort cycling 350km in 6 days in the foothills of the Himalayas and we want you to come too! Join us November 16th - 25th 2018 and consider your leadership journey, visit Nepalese projects, meet leaders from local NGO's, reflect - and participate in Cycle Nepal
