Leaders need to be measured too. Our processes can get them from good to great.
Governance practices are constantly evolving. Boards have a responsibility to ensure they are performing at an optimal level and helping the organization perform at its best for the benefit of shareholders and stakeholders.
- Create clarity around the ‘rules’ that help a board know who does what and how they are accountable.
- Get your board performing to its maximum potential so it’s adding value (not draining energy from the senior management).
- Provide robust evaluation. We can help directors reflect on how they can become even better and make a greater contribution to the organization’s performance.
Board, Chair, Committee, and Director Evaluations
How can boards and directors improve unless someone provides them with honest feedback?
- Provide a unique evaluation process specific to your needs.
- Offer feedback so directors understand how they are viewed in the board room and how they can perform better.
- Ensure that your board chair is providing optimal leadership.
- Help your committees support the work of the board, by focusing on key responsibilities, and providing useful reports to the other directors.
Boards are ultimately responsible for the CEO’s performance.
- Use the process to achieve greater alignment between the board and CEO on key issues.
- Create a forum to have a real dialogue about the CEO’s performance and how he or she can advance the organization’s vision and strategy.
- Produce balanced feedback from all constituencies so the board discussion is relevant.
