How can boards and members of boards reach their full potential?

The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (TIHR) has been leading thinking about organisations since its inception in 1947. Today, as then, the corporate world is undergoing increasing pressure to demonstrate a sustainable, generative and meaningful impact on society and employees whilst delivering improved services and products. These tensions and others are explored in this important new book, Dynamics at Boardroom Level: A Tavistock Primer for Leaders, Coaches and Consultants.

The Tavistock Institute has provided board-level information and guidance for the International Corporate Governance Network, the government-initiated Walker Review following the Banking Crisis, as well as corporate and public sector clients and executives across the world. In this book, the reader gets a useful framework of theory and practice that broadens vision and deepens thinking about what is happening in boardrooms. The book opens the door to the reader to a new world of board dynamics, edited by those who really understand the deeper workings of the complex human system and its work at board level. This edited volume brings together the insights and contemporary case studies from participants on the Tavistock Institute Dynamics at Board Level programme that draws on the thinking of Tavistock scholars and practitioners and their work on the dynamics of task, role, authority and power.

Programme Co-Directors Dr Mannie Sher and Dr Leslie Brissett and their fellow Tavistock Associate, Tazi Smith, have edited a book that speaks directly to issues of our time. The contributing authors are senior leadership practitioners and board evaluators from Government, International consultancy firms, FTSE 100 and Global UN institutions.

Dynamics at Boardroom Level represents an essential resource for business leaders as well as leadership coaches and mental health professionals.
