We administer 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 Leadership Development Coach (LDC). The LDC serves as an executive coach. The 360 MIRROR data points combined with one-on-one LDC interactions over 3 months result in each Fellow creating a personalized Leadership Development Plan (LDP).
Each Fellow is paired with an Executive Mentor who is an established business or non-profit leader. The Fellow-Mentor relationship spans nine months with the goal of implementing the LDP and leveraging the Mentor’s leadership insights. Fellow-Mentor check-ins occur every two to three weeks through virtual meetings. The Fellow-Mentor relationship may continue after the Fellowship if the Fellow and Executive Mentor so choose.
Fellows participate in an annual Global Good Fund Summit each spring. This 4-day event provides a platform for networking between Fellows, LDCs, Coaches, Alumni, and The Global Good Fund staff. The Summit is a curated leadership development experience for each Fellow.
Each Fellow receives a leadership development grant of up to $10,000. These funds are used explicitly for LDP implementation and 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.
