SocialPioneers™ is the Social Transformation Agency for governments and civil society.
Transformation of an operation, organisation or system has to be led from the top, driven internally, and governed as an integrated and inclusive programme. It demands the commitment of confident leaders with honed capabilities who are able to devise, drive and embed new ways of working, to navigate uncertainties and complexities, and to realise benefits through managing progress and risks effectively.
Listen, Learn, Leverage
SocialPioneers™ provides a range of specialist services to support, skill and equip transformation leaders.
Our learning and development solutions are designed to help organisations and individuals improve their competence and skills, and gain vital understanding and insight into not only the ‘What’ of transformation but, crucially, the ‘How’. What is leadership in a transformation context? What does transformational leadership require or reveal? How is transformation leadership manifested in a person, or a relationship, or process? How do you start, and who draws the finish line?
SocialPioneers Transformation Leaders Academy™ provides practical learning, bespoke tools, talent development and taster visits. Whether delivered at our facilities in Milton Keynes or on-site with clients, our intense residential courses, subject workshops, masterclasses, and facilitated events offer exciting opportunities to explore, discover and develop your transformation leadership abilities and potential. All training is given by senior practitioners who are able to draw upon their own transformation experiences. Internationally recognised accreditation is available.
Strategic Executive Coaching on transformation by our qualified coaches is offered to top decision makers on one-to-one and group bases. Coaching sessions are conducted in a personal and confidential manner. Used strategically — by translating business strategy and organisational goals into individual development objectives — our executive coaching is a leadership development service specifically designed to bring dramatic improvements both to the transformation performance of top executives and to the transformation performance of the people reporting to them.
Transformation Leader Mentoring is a cornerstone of our approach to transferring knowledge and building capacity to deliver transformation. SocialPioneers’ Transformation Mentors work alongside transformation leaders, champions and implementation teams, providing hands-on advice, guidance, encouragement, and customised technical support. Whereas coaching is used to enhance existing skills for the fulfilment of new responsibilities, mentoring is about acquiring new skills for the individual so that they may succeed in their professional contributions within the transformation process.
Collaboration, Dedication, Application
SocialPioneers™ promotes practical learning and quality performance. The two go hand-in hand.
Our Academy, coaching and mentoring services are unique and collaborative. We consult with you at every stage, and work closely with you to meet your specific needs and grow your capacity for dynamic, effective and sustainable transformation.
SocialPioneers’ expert trainers, facilitators, coaches and mentors are highly experienced practitioners in their field. They are also completely committed to SocialPioneers’ ethos of empowering people to empower progress.
A key benefit of our learning experiences and accelerated learning techniques is that they extend beyond theory to utility because they are anchored in real-world application. We believe learning cannot take place in isolation. It must be connected to the realities of your life to realise the full benefit of the time and effort you invest.
What happened in Milton Keynes was good, and the best part was that it concentrated more on advanced skills and technologies relating to change and the achievement of supervised transformation within a short time.
