Dear members of the Year One programme of the Leadership Development Project,
I am delighted that you will be forming the Year One cohort of the L’Arche UK Leadership Development Project which begins later this month. The first year of this two year project will be critical in shaping the future leadership of L’Arche in the UK – not just for the duration of the two year project but into the next decade, so you will be acting on behalf of all of us as together with the other participants you identify what works well in leadership in L'Arche today and how we can strengthen leadership for the future. In addition you will be receiving a precious opportunity to develop your own personal leadership.
Thank you for making this commitment that will benefit your community and wider L’Arche. Below I offer some thoughts on the journey of L’Arche in the UK through recent times and the possible potential futures that may emerge tomorrow depending on how our communities choose to grow and the shape of the leadership we will choose to nurture. I hope this reflection will provide a context for your explorations, research and learning as Leadership Development Project participants today and as a leader yourself tomorrow.
