“”Leadership at all levels is the main driver of staff engagement since leaders set the tone and climate and are in the position of being able to create, or otherwise, the bond between staff and the organisation.”‘ Lady Berkeley, (Julia Clarke.)
THE RIDGEWAY PARTNERSHIP in Oxfordshire specialises in services for people with learning disabilities and other complex needs in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. During a process of Board Level change, LeaderShape introduced the CEO, Julia Clarke, to new ideas regarding the role of Emotional Intelligence and leadership styles. Julia outlines her concerns that she thought the Board might not have had the necessary skillset to create a performance enhancing culture, but she learned something entirely different from the programme that ensued.

Julia says LeaderShape were courageous enough to tell her something she wasn’t expecting; she was so impressed by what she learned, she went on to help set up LeaderShape’s healthcare team.
