About the EB Centre

Established in 2014 as Engendering Balance Ltd, the three Founders, Dr Sue Congram, Rosie Mayes and Mary Musselbrook, brought decades of experience, expertise and knowledge to the business. Successfully developing a unique perspective for strengthening leadership and dealing with 21st century leadership issues, they set about growing a resource of skilful practitioners (Practitioner Partners) to work with them in their client work, as the business grew.

Now in its 5th year and renamed as the EB Centre for Engendering Balance in Leadership, their ideas and concepts are spreading in synchrony with newly emerging leadership needs. Their ambitions now are to make the concepts and expertise of the the Centre, more widely available, developing products that will support personal leadership (Solo), relational leadership (Pairs) and team leadership - with resources for practitioners on the horizon for 2020.
