Strong, agile leadership is at the heart of Bromford's
It's an issue that our Chief Executive, Mick Kent,
is really passionate about and that's why he launched Bromford's
Leadership Academy back in 2006. Since then more than 300
colleagues have completed the programme.
Inspired by the example of Lord Nelson, who made
sure his captains were so in tune with his battle strategy at
Trafalgar that French Admiral Villeneuve said it was like
fighting 60 Nelsons, the academy is helping to grow a new
generation of leaders throughout our business
The academy is based around our leadership values:
- Choosing a positive attitude
- Taking personal responsibility
- Putting others first
- Believing in people
- Enriching lives
- Embracing learning
Not the first thing that comes to mind when we're think about
being fun, but even in the world of accountability Bromford is
showing how it can be a commercial organisation leading not only
our sector, but the whole UK in thinking outside the box.
For Bromford governance is exercised in three main areas:
- Testing and giving the go ahead for all our innovative new
- Checking how well we turn those ideas into real things that
shape our business.
- Making sure our executive team is brave, always leading from
At the heart of effective governance is an effective board - the
cornerstone of our governance framework. We have reviewed and
changed the way our Board and committee structures operate to
ensure we're not your usually social business.
We're different you see. Take it from Executive Director
Philippa Jones, who wrote about the future of boards for The Guardian.
