GBI works with organisations to help them unlock their potential and improve their positive impact on society. Many businesses understand that they have a critical role to play in solving a range of social and environmental issues and we are turning that understanding into action.
We are a not for profit organisation launched by the Executive Coaching Consultancy (ECC), who have been developing leadership capability for over two decades. They have been part of helping organisations connect their practices to help address broader social issues and they passionately believe in the positive role for business in society.
We work with corporate and non-profit partners; building fairness, equality and capability. Through transformative and innovative programmes and research, we are contributing to current discourse and working to support progress in the issues that we care about.
Perspectives is an innovative and unique cross-organisation peer coaching partnership for corporate leaders and senior/executive third sector leaders. Perspectives combines what we know about how to help business leaders to develop deeper understanding of their consumers, customers and people and effects change for minority groups with our experience in building capacity in the community. Leadership has changed, and the future of the workplace requires leaders to understand, cross boundaries, engage and empathise. These skills strengthen their abilities to work across culture, background and ethnicity to successfully engage their audiences.get involved
