Our approach to board development

An effective board is fundamental to any organisation’s prospects for success. Our approach to board and senior team development is rooted the application of broad ranging theory into real life situations, delivered through a 6-to-24 month programme, facilitated by experts in their field.

The GGI board and top team development offer can involve the following elements:

  • Analysing: First, we build a comprehensive understanding of the organisation.
  • Designing: Then we work with you to develop a programme that is relevant to your goals and fits the organisation.
  • Learning: We draw content from a range of different theories and thinkers and deliver content in a fun and accessible way.
  • Embedding: Our experts will bring their practitioner experience to ensure that new ideas are embedded and create lasting change.
  • Reviewing: Improvement is a continuous process, so we'll work with you to design an approach to review focused on sustainable progress.

Workshop topics:

  • system working and adaptive leadership
  • characteristics of a highly effective board
  • operating through informal authority / influence
  • stakeholder mapping and management, including public / community engagement

What sets us apart is that our programmes are:

  • delivered by senior teams, who all have a blend of senior practitioner and extensive board-level experience
  • bespoke and co-designed with you
  • informed by leading methodologies – not tied to one
  • adapted to be practical for you and your sector – not too academic or theoretical
  • illustrated with best practices across sectors and internationally
  • imaginative, engaging and fun
