Leadership Forum

Leadership Forum is UIMPROVE terminology for setting up an annual programme of activity for the top three tiers of management. It is about creating a structured opportunity to hear and develop common messages, do work together, prevent silo working and to develop a consistent approach to leading and running the organisation.

Who should attend?

The Corporate Brain – Managing Director or Chief Executive + Direct Reports

The Next Tier Down – all Direct Reports to the above

Any other leaders of large teams or key organisational players but no hangers on


Why run a Leadership Forum?

It gives the Chief Executive direct access to the Next Tier Down – a level they would
normally only have limited direct access to

It allows the Corporate Brain to collectively interact with the Next Tier Down

It is an opportunity to develop alignment and consistency of an organisation’s leaders
– it brings together the senior leaders in one group so that everybody hears and participates in the development of one message and approach

It is a structural way of living the message of inter-departmental cooperation

It is not about departmental presentations, nor is it a roadshow, it is a participative way
to explore key issues for the organisation

It should be integrated into the Annual Corporate Planning Process

Responsibility for the quality of leadership in an organisation lies at the top. A Leadership
Forum is a means of reinforcing this.
