Board level behaviours

The Board is a team, like any other.  Yet a team under greater pressures: of time, finances, regulation, and greater complexity.  This creates uncertainty, instability and incoherence in the top team.  

The nature of boards is changing, with more diverse representation, different thinking and new solutions.  This takes willingness, by the board, to envision a better tomorrow.

Lead with emotional intelligence (EQ)

EQ is a more accurate predictor of success than  IQ and there's a strong link between EQ and leadership. 

EQ training helps leaders optimise their emotions to improve decision-making, bring out the best in their teams, improve relationships and be more effective influencers.

Dynamic communications

A new world of dynamic communications is needed: a thousand everyday conversations, where people respond and get into action as a result of your words.

We work with board members, leaders, teams and groups to shape key messages, and engage their audience.
