Do you run a progressive board? How does your board get things done? What tone does your board set for the organisation? Are ethical issues frankly and openly discussed? Are ethical considerations given to board decision making? These are critical questions that border on board leadership, culture and ethics.
Although “board leadership” has many facets, but one commonality with the term has to do with who leads the board. The personality of the person who leads the board and his or her relationship with the organisation’s stakeholders play crucial role in the success of the organisation. With this in mind, two critical questions come to play. Is the right chairman running the board? Is the right CEO running the organisation’s business operations? Culture and ethics are key ingredients to embed board ethical and effective leadership.
This highly interactive, compressed and intense two-day programme provides participants with the opportunity to learn why boards exist, board leadership, board culture and the ethical role of the board. Participants will gain insights into the changing world of board governance and the challenge of board leadership.
Participants will learn through our blended learning approach, including presentations, case studies, role plays, insights from a board member on board leadership, board culture and board ethical consideration.

Why LeishTon Academy?
We are first a research company, and everything we do, be it training or consulting, is based on research we have conducted ourselves or those conducted by others. So, we do not just train on the basis of emotions. Our training programmes are based on strong theoretical and empirical findings. These findings allow us to provide our programmes’ participants up to date perspectives on areas of interest.
In addition, we are locals and we understand the business environment. We have a good blend of both consulting and real-world day-to-day practical business experience in Nigeria. We have folded our sleeves before and we can fold it for you. Indeed, we are not just trainers and facilitators, we have a good understanding of how things are done in practice in Nigeria. We pride ourselves to be subject matter experts (SMEs) in the areas we train on. If we cannot provide contemporary insights and in-depth knowledge on a particular subject area, then we would say it from the outset.
Furthermore, we have developed our competencies in a lot of areas and we can be a one-stop shop for your organisation in terms of consulting, training and research (qualitative or quantitative) in the areas of leadership, governance, strategy, change management, risk management, compliance, AML/CFT (for financial institution), ethics, team functionality, emotional intelligence, service excellence, internal control and standard operating procedures (SOPs) development. We also go out of our way to adopt the best model for each training programme we offer and we are even ready to go “Down Under” (Australia) if that is where we will find the best model. Aut Optimum Aut Nihil; this Latin maxim is not just a philosophy to us, we live it.
Finally, we have few partner firms in South Africa that we can occasionally collaborate with in areas where we need additional capacity.
