What three questions should you be asking yourself to ensure you’re heading in the right direction?…

For those of you that follow TIE closely, you’ll know that life in our world has been turned upside down.
Although I feel as though it was necessary, this has by far been the most challenging experience since TIE started in 2006.

As you know, TIE links future leaders from the commercial world with social initiatives across the globe to make change. We create the leaders that businesses need today by using the tool of working with social initiatives in developing countries to unlock people’s potential.

We have been busy working with our lovely corporate clients and developing their future leaders whilst impacting organisations around the developing world. We have been doing this through impactful immersive in-country leadership experiences all over the Global South.

But, then COVID-19 hit. Borders shut.

We had to think SMART and FAST.

So many organisations around the developing world need our help NOW more than ever.

And professionals want to Lead. GROW. And be a force for good.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

After an intense 5 months I am SO excited to announce TIE Accelerator.

Now professionals can get involved with TIE in order to find their inner leaders, without having to be sponsored by their companies. They can boost their personal growth. And be the CHANGE that they want to see in this world.

TIE Accelerator is a community of problem solvers who accelerate positive change around the world. We’ve designed an immersive six-week online professional development program that pairs cross-disciplinary professionals with a social initiative in the developing world.

You can do it a couple of hours a day. And fit it around your busy life. And it is CPD certified, so you will get a certificate, and the hours will go towards your professional development.

The experience will not only blow your mind. But the result will significantly impact an organisation and community of people in a place that really needs your help.

Today I chat with Mel Parsey, Chief Strategy Officer at the Global agency B-Reel, about TIE Accelerator.

She talks about the types of leaders that companies need. What the best way to learn is. What is important to her from a professional point of view. What has steered her career decisions. And where she invests her energy and her time.

She brings to life how the launch of TIE Accelerator came about, why it’s important and the vision.

And, at the end, she suggests three questions that you should ask yourself, to ensure you’re heading in the right direction.
