Board and Leadership Development

Expert facilitation services for boards and senior leadership teams

We design board development programmes for senior teams that respond to the unique setting your leaders work in and the challenges they face. Through careful and intelligent facilitation, we can ensure that boards feel a common purpose, focusing their contribution where it is needed most.

  • Increasing personal effectiveness and leadership skills
  • Growing talent strategically
  • Navigating through change
  • Learning from best practices
  • Building relationships and partnerships
  • Putting together a workable action plan aligned to your organisational goals
  • Developing effective measures of success.
"In my experience boards rarely respond well to mandatory training but the session run for us on equality and diversity by EW Group engaged, energised and enthused our most senior leaders and left them wanting more."
Tim Ryley, Director of Strategic Planning and Performance at NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group

Leadership development for boards and senior management teams – what to expect

Our design process is collaborative and confidence-building. Your leadership event might be as simple as a facilitated discussion, or the co-creation of a board development plan.

Or we can build in additional features to heighten your leaders’ engagement and bring greater flexibility to their learning. These might include:

  • Webinars
  • Email digests
  • Podcasts
  • Audio-visual content
  • Live scenarios using our team of actors.

All our programmes start with a focus on current good practice and successes, before identifying areas for improvement in other areas of board development.
