Each recipient will work within a team of four senior leaders from public and private sector organisations to advise another charity on everything from finance and governance to helping it to increase its impact.  The process tests leaders’ skills on real time strategic issues: learning that they can then take back to their own organisations.The Pilotlight bursaries are designed for charity CEOs or leaders of major divisions within larger charities wanting to extend and develop their skills beyond their usual environment, and also offer the opportunity for senior, experienced fundraisers to get a broader organisational overview of another charity. Applications open today (11 March) and are expected to close on 7 April. Leaders can register their interest via the Pilotlight site.Last year, the trial programme received many applications from leaders who had previously received coaching from Pilotlight and who wanted to give back to another charity.Pilotlighter Iain Morrison, Chief Executive of Revive MS Support said:“Leadership is about learning and sharing. It is very easy in our sector to become insular but this involvement has reinforced for me the impact and importance of the 3rd sector in delivering needful and professional services. It has been a real joy being involved as a Pilotlighter, it has reminded me again of the significant impact the Pilotlight process has had on the organisation I lead, and the positive effect it has had on our growth and development since then.”Gillian Murray, Chief Executive of Pilotlight, said: Advertisement New Pilotlight bursaries available for charity leaderscenter_img “Since 2003, Pilotlight’s work has helped over 700 charities. In the process, our business members overwhelmingly report improved leadership and coaching skills from being exposed to external challenges and from sharing different perspectives with fellow coaches and partner charities. That’s why we’re keen to offer this development opportunity to successful leaders within the third sector.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Crucial benefits communication strategies

first_imgAs a business leader, you spend a lot of time and effort—not to mention expense—to provide the best possible benefits for your employees. After all, ensuring that the members of your workforce are happy and healthy helps ensure that they are effective and productive at work. According to a recent study, “Satisfied and workers who feel well provide better customer service and are more productive each day, leading to a 12% spike in productivity for your business and higher profits.”1With all the resources you’re expending on employee benefits, it would be a shame for your efforts to fall flat due to a failure of communication. You could have the best benefits program on the market, but if your employees don’t know what they have access to or how to navigate their plans, you won’t be getting the maximum benefit from your program.Fortunately, there are multiple ways to communicate employee benefits with your workforce. In this blog post, we’ll discuss crucial benefits communication strategies that will help your business get the most from its benefits program. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Reds deepen Villa woes

first_img Villa looked on course for a third successive win after leading at the interval through Christian Benteke’s 18th goal of the campaign. But the Reds equalised through Jordan Henderson early in the second period and then skipper Steven Gerrard’s penalty sealed victory for the visitors. Aston Villa remain in the Barclays Premier League bottom three after Liverpool came from behind to win 2-1 and keep alive their faint hopes of securing a Champions League spot. Andreas Weimann had a volley blocked but Gabriel Agbonlahor should have put Villa ahead after 17 minutes. Matt Lowton delivered a superb curling cross into the danger area which picked out the run of Agbonlahor. But the England striker turned his shot straight at Jose Reina when it looked easier to score. Benteke had scored twice in the 3-1 win at Anfield earlier in the season and after 31 minutes he put Villa ahead. Ashley Westwood’s cross was turned back by Agbonlahor to Benteke who drilled a fierce shot past Reina who got a hand on the ball but could not keep it out of the net. It was the 18th goal of the season from the Belgian international. Liverpool needed only three minutes of the second half to get back on level terms. Philippe Coutinho’s defence-splitting pass was seized on by Henderson who flicked the ball past Brad Guzan into the corner of the net for his fourth goal of the season. Coutinho should have put Liverpool ahead in the 56th minute after beating the offside trap to run onto a pass from Luis Suarez but he dinked his shot wide of the post. But Liverpool were not to be denied and went ahead three minutes later. Suarez was brought down in the box by Nathan Baker and the resulting spot-kick was converted by Gerrard. Then Gerrard headed Benteke’s header off the line at full stretch from a Westwood corner. Benteke had the ball in the net in injury time but was clearly a yard offside. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Gardens needs rain

first_img Press Association The four-year-old filly, owned by JP McManus, showed her appreciation for plenty of ease in the ground when causing a 25-1 surprise in the Athasi Stakes at the Curragh five weeks ago. Found, who was runner-up in that Group Three contest, gave the form a boost when finishing second to Pleascach in the Irish 1,000 Guineas. O’Brien gave Iveagh Gardens several entries in the hope of the weather being favourable. However, the County Kildare handler took her out of last weekend’s Ballyogan Stakes and has ruled her out of the Glencairn Stakes at Leopardstown on Thursday. Should the rains come, then Iveagh Gardens has the option of the Ballycorus Stakes, also at Leopardstown, on Thursday week. The other early-closing entry she has is in the Brownstown Stakes at Fairyhouse on July 5. “It’s very weather dependent. She obviously needs a good cut in the ground and, with the weather at the minute, I think she might be heading for her summer holidays,” said O’Brien. “There’s no chance of her running on Thursday and she’s also in the following Thursday as well. “There’s a bit of a break in the weather coming but I’m not sure if it’s going to be enough. “She’s in good form and ready to run when needed, but I don’t know whether there’s much point keeping her race fit all way through the summer in the hope of a break in the weather. “We might be better off giving her a month eating grass and bringing her back for the autumn.” center_img Charles O’Brien is thinking of giving Iveagh Gardens a midsummer holiday and bring her back when there is a better chance of soft ground in the autumn.last_img read more

Luis Rengifo’s power potential encourages Angels

first_imgRengifo has just six homers through the first 309 at-bats of his debut season in the big leagues. But Wooten and others around the organization have lofty hopes for him because of what he did on Saturday night.Rengifo blasted a homer up to the train tracks beyond the left field fence at Minute Maid Park, a blast measured at 425 feet. A few days earlier, he had a belted a 427-foot homer against the Texas Rangers.“The power’s starting to shine through,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “We’ve said all along, for his stature, he’s got a lot of power. It’s just a matter of consistent contact. He hit the home run in Texas, he hit the home run tonight. Some of the home runs he hits are moon shots. He has a tremendous amount of power, it’s just a matter of consistency.”Ausmus then pointed out that Rengifo began last season in Class-A. He rocked through three levels of the system in 2018, the first season after the Angels got him in trade for C.J. Cron just before spring training.This season he made his big league debut April 25, and since then he’s been on a rollercoaster of performance. Over the past 14 games, he’s been on an upswing, with a .278 average and a .361 on-base percentage. HOUSTON — Standing in a hallway in the Angels’ clubhouse, Shawn Wooten was in the middle of a discussion about Luís Rengifo’s power when the Angels rookie infielder walked past.The Angels assistant hitting coach reached out and grabbed Rengifo’s arm.“Look at these things,” Wooten said, with his hand around Rengifo’s bicep. “He looks like he could fill out. He’s 22. Think about him in two years. He’s going to be bigger and stronger, more mature.”Wooten then made a prediction about how Rengifo’s power could manifest in terms of homers: “I think there’s 25 in there.” Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros “I go up and down, up and down,” said Rengifo, who is hitting .243 with a .329 on-base percentage and .701 OPS. “But right now I’m feeling good. I’ve learned a lot this year.”The biggest issue currently in Rengifo’s offensive game are strikeouts. He has struck out 75 times in 354 plate appearances. Over the seven games prior to Sunday, though, he’d struck out just once in 31 plate appearances. He had only nine strikeouts in his previous 70 plate appearances.“There’s been a lot of conversation about controlling the strike zone and getting a good pitch, controlling his emotions,” Wooten said. “I think this is his second time going through and seeing (pitchers). It helps that he knows what they’re trying to do.”If Rengifo can continue to improve, Wooten has lofty expectations for him.“I’m not going to put him next to their second baseman,” Wooten said, referring to the Astros’ José Altuve, “but he can be that type of player. He has some power. He can run. He can bunt. He can do some things. … With his growth, he has the potential to be a superstar. The tools are off the charts. But it’s just obviously a matter of putting it all together, like a lot of young kids.”Related Articles ALSOTommy La Stella has begun taking some ground balls and hitting off a tee, Ausmus said.
