Disruptive change is the # 1 concern of many Boards of Directors. If you are looking for tools to better deal with change, the Institute is the right place to start. As masters of change we have developed an extensive toolkit for both executive and non-executive directors. This toolkit is focussed on proactive supervision and excecutive leadership agility.
Both in one-tier and two-tier boards professional supervision is crucial for longterm viability of your organization. We invite your supervisory board (members) to use our tools designed to check and improve its structure, roles and culture. In particular, board dynamics can be a challenge. With our support, your Board will become a true strategic and proactive team. Please contact us for more information.
The Institute offers two types of Board reviews: online questionnaires and face-to-face meetings. Or, a combination of both. All members will receive a pdf-report with our recommendations elaborating on the results of the online self-assessment in a clear and concise way. With our support, your Board will become more aware of its strengths and challenges. Please contact us for more information.
Permanent education of your Board members is easy with our incompany development programmes. They focus on improving leadership agility for executive directors, professional supervision for non-executive directors, and board dynamics and board decision making. Each participant will receive a copy of one of our e-books to accelerate his or her development. This service is only available for companies headquartered in the Netherlands.
In turbulent times, your change capacity as a CEO, General Manager or Executive Director is a highly valuable asset. To develop this capacity to a higher level of leadership agility, you need an integrated approach. We invite you to apply our easy to learn but highly effective techniques based on the universal principle of deepening personal stability while simultaneously broadening your flexibility.

Excellent Board CultureDr. Richard Leblanc
Based on over 100 interviews, the authors, Daniel Le Gras and Jacques Gerards, thoroughly canvas what really and universally impacts board performance. This book is very important, user-friendly, and a must read for board and committee chairs, other directors, and senior management and advisors reporting to boards.

The Workbook Board Leadership and Change Capacity is a must read for any CEO or Executive Director of a profit or non-proft organization. As an experienced Chairman of the Board, I can confirm that the Workbook is spot on regarding the approach our educational institution needs in order to keep up with all the changes we are confronted with. In addition, I was delighted by the many new insights the book has to offer helping me to continue to grow as a Chairman and as a change leader. The book is well structured and easy to read. A must read!Drs. Jonne Gaemers

Noticing that “Nothing remains the same except change” of the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, 2500 years later the ‘Workbook Board Leadership and Change Capacity” presents a practical follow-up on this theme. In a straightforward way, the book initiates Executive (and Non-Executive) Directors in the art of becoming an agile leader in a turbulent professional world. A hands-on book, filled with useful tips and best practices. Highly recommended!Dr. Hans Stam PHD
