Enable a tenant to lead on at least one project
Leadership is not only about being a team leader, a department leader, manager or director. Being a leader can be about taking the lead on a project or an initiative. We would encourage you to empower your tenants and residents to take the lead. Take a good look at your tenant participation, engagement or volunteering opportunities and the diversity of those who become involved. Could you involve someone who is:
- A colleague/tenant/customer/service user
- Younger or Older
- Female or Male
- Black or from Minority Ethnic Background
- Gay or Lesbian
- From a particular religious background
- Underprivileged socio-economic background
- Any other group which you think deserves to be represented or supported but isn’t
A project could mean anything from organising an event, through coordinating tenant feedback on your website, to consulting other tenants on an issue.
