Director roles in the NHS are becoming more complex. This is increasingly the step up from senior management to the board. Hay Group’s latest research looks at the nature of this stretch and identifies four tactics for organisations to help their leaders make the leap:

  1. Fundamentals: features of the organisation itself that enable all directors to be effective.
  2. Preparation: the long term leadership development that lays the ground-work for effective performance as a director
  3. Transition: the support immediately before, during and after the step up to the board that makes a promotion successful
  4. Breadth: the work done in post to strengthen and reinforce the corporate self-image
