Leeds Jewish Welfare Board


A new era. Launching improved team relationships.
JFA digging deep to get to the root cause of the problem.

Services: People Management – Leadership and Management Workshop

The Challenge:

JFA were approached by the Leeds Jewish Welfare Board, a charitable trust, following a recommendation, to deliver Leadership & Management training to the CEO and her senior leadership team.

Discussions with the CEO highlighted that the senior leadership team had a series of challenges around effective working, which were impacting on the delivery of the orgnanistion’s strategic plan and key priorities.

  1. To explore the challenges facing the organisation and therefore colleagues
  2. To consider effective working practices for the team

Our approach:

As in all cases, an initial consultation with the client was taken, to ascertain the challenges the charity was facing and to identify a strategy to address the issues concerned. In this case, a customised one-day workshop was considered to be the best approach, to tackle the issues the team were facing head-on, that would then allow collaborative and supportive working going forward.

The day programme included a variety of discussion activities and interactive workshops to engage the team, based around the following topics:

  • Challenges in the Organisation
  • Leading Change
  • Working Relationships
  • Team-working
  • Communication
  • Customer Service

The Results:

The feedback from the CEO and team members was extremely positive, with resulting changes in practice going forward enabling significantly improved collaboration and team-working to facilitate the meeting of the charity’s aims. The session was also in some way, catalytic in helping the CEO realise a new Vision for identifying and developing a senior leadership team, so that it was ‘fit for the future’, which involved a re-structure with new roles and responsibilities being identified to drive the organisation forward, helping the business to go from ‘strength-to-strength’.
