You want a better board
You need a better board
You've heard the quip, 'a fish rots from the head' and you have a lurking sense of a bad smell. Getting the right people on to the board is hard; having them work together on your common purpose seems an impossible dream.
They are all talented and committed individually, yet somehow they don't click when they meet. Few board members have been trained and developed for their roles. You get bogged down in the detail of the operations, which prevents you from achieving the board's higher calling. And it's slowly strangling the company. So much potential, but so little impact.
But boards can be better; they can be more effective. And having a skilled outside perspective, looking in and working with you can change the dynamic.
With extensive cross-sector, national and international experience, Graham at The Leader can work alongside you to re-focus your energy, talents and direction. It will take work and commitment, mixed with the humility to learn to think and act differently when the board come together. You will be changing not just how you feel as individuals, but how you feel when you work as a board.
We'll navigate steadily through the board development journey, going into the areas where we are often most reluctant to go, to do the hard work of changing as individuals and a board team.
If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing properly. Simple but true. Make the move from a struggling board to a thriving one; where you look forward to getting together to make things better and make things happen.
Need an interim chief executive?
If you need an experienced and qualified temporary chief executive to provide a period of stability and strong leadership through a period of change or transformation, Graham can offer you an ideal solution.
This could be to cover the absence or sudden departure of a senior leader, or to provide expertise or a specialised skill set not available internally, or simply to give the business a bit of ‘thinking and breathing space’ while future options are explored.
A typical interim placement would last between three and nine months, providing a number of benefits such as speed of appointment, in-depth experience and expertise to meet critical challenges as well as a rapid injection of knowledge, independent counsel and objectivity.
Boards or owners would therefore have the assurance of ensuring that their organisation is in safe hands during periods of transition and uncertainty.
We work with business leaders across west and central Scotland.
We come to you!
