The Bravehearts Programme has developed
a unique approach to assist
volunteers, business, practitioners
and policy makers in coming together
to make an effective difference in
addressing the issues and harsh
realities of inner city life.
The programme itself consists of
pre-course coaching and diagnostics,
a "stretch" assignment, post course
coaching and an "action planning"
event. The skills of
co-operation, co-ordination, self
reliance, team work, planning, and
problem solving are prepared for and
then honed during a week long
experiential wilderness training
course on a remote Scottish island.
Executives will work side by side
with carefully selected groups of
Third Sector participants who are
committed to making a difference in
the field of Social Development.
The programme is proven to have
powerful impact on participants, in
particular, they have developed
their capacity to handle uncertainty
with renewed resilience and an
ability to lead confidently through
One of the
key lessons from the
Bravehearts Programme, that
they don't teach you at the
great business schools is
'How to lead when you have
nothing. No power. No
authority. No experience or
knowledge - just yourself'
