QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What have you accomplished through your Oak-funded programme that you’re most proud to share with your colleagues?

 

We’re extremely proud that we had an opportunity to partner with Fayetteville State University, East Carolina University, Eye to Eye, and YouthBuild to host four Leadership Discovery Sessions. These sessions gave CCL a direct opportunity to learn more from and about youth with learning differences and their preferences for engagement.

 

What’s the most interesting challenge your Oak-funded programme currently faces?

 

Within our original project timeline, we did not account for the impact of natural disasters. Our project team is based in North Carolina and we did not expect Hurricane Matthew, which began on September 28, 2016. The hurricane was beyond our control and our team has learned some phenomenal lessons about learning agility, innovation strategy and effective change management.

 

 

The Center for Creative Leadership is a globally ranked, internationally known non-profit organisation that provides leadership development, education and research for leaders at all levels throughout the world. Its grant supports the creation of two new online, research-based leadership development resources that cater specifically to the user experience and engagement needs of youth with learning differences. These resources will be available in spring 2017.

Prototyping Accessible Digital Leadership Development Resources for Youth and Young Adults

ABOUT THE ORGANISATION

 

The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)’s mission is to advance the understanding, practice and development of leadership for the benefit of society worldwide. To realize its mission, CCL creates new knowledge that advances the leadership development field and that positively transforms the way leaders, their organisations and societies confront the most difficult challenges of the 21st century. More than five hundred faculty and staff members in ten offices across the globe offer a variety of leadership development experiences to participants from the private, public, education and non-profit sectors. These custom solutions focus on discovering an organisation’s business challenges, diagnosing its leadership needs, designing a customized solution, developing the solution and materials, delivering the solution and discerning the impact.

 

 

 

 

ABOUT THE OAK FUNDED  PROJECT

 

With Oak’s support, CCL is expanding access to two groups who have traditionally been underserved in the field of leadership development: youth/young adults and those with learning differences. Its grant will result in the development of two online leadership development solutions that are readily available on demand, affordable, and accessible to individuals with varied learner profiles. As part of the design and testing process, CCL will facilitate three half-day leadership development experiences for up to 30 stakeholders with existing Oak partners. Its goal is for at least 2,500 youth with learning differences, ages 15-24, to have used at least one of the digital leadership development solutions within the first year after the launch of these tools. Through the development of these solutions, CCL believes that youth-serving organisations will also be able to more effectively serve youth with learning differences. CCL hopes at least 10 youth-serving organisations will report an increase in their ability to include, serve and empower youth who learn differently.
