Scotland: China Impact Link fellows take part in Enterprising Leadership programme in Beijing

On 15th & 16th April 2019, Impact Link fellows and finalists came together in Beijing to take part in a Social Enterprise Academy ‘Enterprising Leadership’ programme.

There is increasing need for leaders today to be innovative, enterprising and creative, ensuring their organisations can address the different challenges they face and seize new opportunities.

‘Enterprising Leadership’ explores the skills, mind-set and behaviours required to lead in an enterprising and innovative way. The programme aims to enhance leaders’ understanding of what it means to be enterprising and how this approach can support them to achieve their organisations vision, mission and values.
