We are leadership consultants for a connected world
As the world emerges from the pandemic, learning how to build relationships, handle conflict, share control and deliver results together has never been more important.
For Boards… For Leaders… For Organisations…
What we do
Insight and analysis of Board governance processes and behaviours using the UK corporate governance code as our touchstone of best practice. Founder member of the Board Effectiveness Guild – with over 15 years’ experience working with Boards across all sectors and often with unique ownership structures.
Strategic guidance and practical implementation advice and education to ensure that collaboration can be effective across networks of interconnected teams and organisations in times of change.
Personal mentoring for individuals – to strengthen their leadership capabilities, improve their collaborative skills, step up to new Executive or NED roles and help them deliver in a complex and connected world.
Insight, research and news
We are constantly looking to develop new and innovative approaches to collaboration within and between organisations, to gather examples of successful (and less successful) collaboration and to share the latest thinking with our clients.
We wrote our book – now in its second edition – to support leaders who need an accessible, informative and practical guide to effective leadership in today’s connected world. Part 1 introduces a collaborative leader’s toolkit. Part 2 considers collaborative leaders in action. Each chapter is underpinned by surveys of business leaders, and new research and relevant case studies.
We have been commissioned by Governance magazine to write a series of articles based on our regular Socia roundtable dinners – where we invite groups of Board members to contribute to wide ranging discussions on topics of mutual interest, under Chatham House rules. You can read copies of the latest articles here.
As the UK economy emerges from the constraints of lockdown, leaders are facing complex choices over how to re-open offices, manage hybrid working options and balance the needs of the business with those of individuals and teams who have become accustomed to collaborating virtually. We have written a series of blog posts on our experiences and reflections which are available to share here.
