Leadership Stories

Between April and July 2015, Mustard Tree piloted its Leadership Faculty: a new project for developing and releasing the skills and insights of previously homeless and disadvantaged people, led by Leadership Faculty Coordinator Jez Green. As part of the project, the five participants recorded their learning through a combination of reflective learning logs (completed after each session) and other written materials. Their learning was evidenced at a final exhibition, held at the Virgin Money Lounge in central Manchester. Each participant displayed three photographs and talked to a small audience about their own leadership development as part of the faculty. See a summary of our participants learning below.
