Global Good Fund Fellowship 2021
The Global Good Fund Fellowship is a 12-month program supporting the leadership development of social enterprise leaders across the globe.
The Global Good Fund develops each innovator by pairing them with a professional executive coach and a c-suite business executive who serves as a mentor, and by providing leadership assessment resources, a network of peers, sector expertise, and targeted financial capital.
The Global Good Fund is a leadership development enterprise built by and for social entrepreneurs. It identifies high-potential leaders and accelerates their success through proprietary development methods.
Who should apply?
Fellows who are fully able to commit to the program are encouraged to apply. Global Good Fund wants fellows who seek mentorship, who are eager to be coached. The younger the social entrepreneur, the greater the potential for long-term impact, and the more likely they are to be in need of mentoring.
These are the social entrepreneurs who will benefit the most from the program. Ones who need their leadership skills tuned and honed to best drive their team and enterprise onto greater success.
- 360° Assessment
The 360 MIRROR leadership assessment tool designed specifically for social entrepreneurs to derive feedback from their board, staff, peers, and stakeholders as well as the Fellow. The Fellow will retake the leadership assessment at the end of the Fellowship and then 1, 3, 5, and 10 years post Fellowship to track his/her growth.
- Leadership Development Plan
The results of the 360 MIRROR are used by each Fellow with his/her professional executive coach (EC). The 360 MIRROR data points combined with one-on-one executive coach interactions over 3 months result in each Fellow creating a personalized Leadership Development Plan (LDP).
- Executive Coaching + Business Mentorship
Each Fellow is paired up with 1 dedicated professional executive coach and 1 dedicated c-suite business executive who serves as a mentor. Over the 12 month Fellowship period Fellows receive intensive 1:1 executive coaching and business mentorship sessions via phone/Skype/WhatsApp.
The coach and the mentor serve as accountability partners, challenging the Fellow to complete his or her Leadership Development Plan and provide personalized and consistent support along the way.
- Annual Summit
Fellows participate in an annual Global Good Fund Summit each spring. This 4-day event provides a platform for networking between Fellows, Executive Coaches, Business Mentors, Alumni, and The Global Good Fund staff. The Summit is a curated leadership development experience for each Fellow.
- Targeted Funds
Each Fellow receives a $10,000 grant. These funds are to be used explicitly for the implementation of his/her Leadership Development Plan and on leadership development with a special focus on experiential learning.
- Peer and Subject Matter Expert Network
Fellows are part of a global cohort of social entrepreneurs. The Global Good Fund facilitates regular interaction among the Fellows. Fellows are encouraged to engage each other, Alumni, and Content Experts in tackling leadership development challenges.
The Global Good Fund intentionally connects Fellows with Content Experts to address specific functional, sector, or geographic issues faced by each Fellow.
