CBI Leadership Behaviours

Our leadership behaviours set out the qualities and characteristics of dynamic leaders at the CBI, the behaviours that will help our staff deliver to deliver sustainable growth for all.

  • If I see something that needs doing, I own it, solve it and get on with it. I’m accountable and responsible.

  • And I find them from others inside and outside the CBI.

  • I think beyond myself, empower others, build teams and celebrate success.

  • I make myself, and the CBI, better today than it was yesterday.

The CBI Skills Framework

The CBI Skills Framework

Our Skills Framework describes the skills that are essential for effective performance at the CBI. As individuals, the skills are central to high performance and career progression, and as a business, alongside the behaviours, they support us to deliver our CBI strategy.

“Working at the CBI has given me the opportunity to work on issues that I feel passionately about and to see first-hand the impact of public policy on businesses across the UK. To be part of an organisation that is at the heart of delivering such change makes every day rewarding.”

Tania Kumar, Programme Director - Decarbonisation
