UNDERSTANDING GENIUS BOARDS

At Genius Boards, we believe that the most effective Boards don’t come about by accident, rather, they are realised through careful analysis and the application of intelligent and creative design.

Board effectiveness is the product of many factors working together; good governance at all levels being the most critical – in addition to a multitude of other interactions. During our reviews, we prioritise social, communication and interpersonal skills equally with technical skills, industry expertise and corporate structural design, all of which need to exist in balance and with sufficient diversity to achieve the optimal levels of decision making that will enable your Board to transcend its limitations and achieve true excellence.

High integrity enables us to create a ‘safe’ place to discuss tough issues with our customers’ leadership. Our approach is to be honest, transparent, forthright and always ethical. We help boards from FTSE 100 organisations through to SME companies find a better way of operating and provide the support necessary to enable a strong and healthy culture to flourish and play its part in board and organisation success.

Our Approach

Genius Boards works with the Chairmen and the Company Secretary of organisations which not only want to comply with the Code’s recommendations on board evaluation procedures but need these evaluations to deliver incremental, real, practical value. Getting the tone from the top spot-on makes an enormous difference to how an organisation can perform.

We help make real change where we agree with our customers it is needed. We offer flexible, tailor-made evaluation solutions that deliver real improvement to the organisation and that are efficient and value for money, focusing on the board’s future role in line with strategy, market conditions and its ability to be the best board it can be.

The Genius Boards team has a wealth of corporate experience along with coaching, mentoring and organisational culture expertise drawn from many industries including financial services firms regulated by the PRA and FCA. Our empathy with boards and our understanding of the power of harnessing EQ with IQ transform boards for the better.
