Session: Outward Mindset: From silos to dream teaming

Max Newton & Lindsay Tilson Jones

How much money, time, energy and people are lost as a result of teams working poorly with each other? Can you afford that to continue? You can’t afford not to hear about Outward Mindset.

We'll take you behind the scenes on how Outward Mindset revolutionised our leadership and enabled us to achieve amazing results working with other teams. A new way of thinking about ourselves and relationships with others totally changed how we led our teams, broke down silos, totally turned around ways of working with other teams, improved our wellbeing, and more. All the things we think are important in leaderships – including coaching and feedback – only really make sense when wrapped in Outward Mindset.

We will give an insight into Outward Mindset and bring real life examples of this way of thinking in practise and you’ll be amazed at the results. Both from our time together at Shelter and since we’ve been apart ☹

We’ll talk through some models and tools, telling stories to illustrate. And we’ll even have some audience interaction, including getting a chance to work through a key Outward Mindset tool with your neighbour.

Outward Mindset is a new way of solving age old issues that are a constant complaint at organisations in the sector.

Max believes that all fundraising is about relationship building, storytelling and supporter experience. He has built teams and developed strategies in all areas of fundraising – but thinks we really need to put equal time into building culture.

When not fundraising, can sometimes be found running ultra marathons, brandishing yellow cards as a referee in junior football, supporting Nottingham Forest (don’t mention European Cups), watching his boy play football in the Makelele role and his girl pursue a career in dance, walking the dog and listening to Golden Era hip hop and 70s funk. Pirate radio DJ back in the day.
