From power-driven to purpose-driven: new report urges boards and executive committees to improve diversity by repositioning themselves

22 July 2021

A new report out today from The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland and the Centre for Synchronous Leadership has revealed that an attachment to power is causing British boards and executive committees to exclude more diverse candidates based on flawed selection processes and criteria. The report finds that the recruitment process is distorted by the assumption that those who do not resemble existing board and committee members are less ‘impressive’, which suggests that the word ‘impressive’ needs to be redefined. The report concludes that meaningful progress in terms of improving boardroom diversity can only be achieved if boards and executive committee members are willing to address ‘compulsive homogeneity’ and prioritise purpose over power.

Want greater psychological safety and better chairing in your boardroom? Try investing in team alignment, new report finds

04 June 2021

A new report out today from The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland and the Centre for Synchronous Leadership has revealed that many boardrooms have worryingly low levels of psychological safety and are avoiding important conversations that involve vulnerability or challenge. COVID-19 has made this behaviour even more of a liability. Unsurprisingly, the worst offenders are more likely to have poor chairing. However, both characteristics are strongly correlated with the extent to which boards and executive committees invest in team alignment. Read more
