Good governance starts with purpose.

As a Board, your highest goal is to guide your organization towards a sustainable and successful future. Staying aligned with your organization’s purpose while intentionally evolving governance practices keeps your organization moving in the right direction.

Who is on your Board and how they work together is at the heart of effectiveness.

Your Board may be rational and business-focused. It is also human. When you have qualified Directors who trust each other, share diverse perspectives, and engage in courageous decision-making, you have greater impact.

Choosing the right CEO is the most consequential decision your Board can make.

While your Board approves direction and provides oversight, your CEO leads the organization, setting the tone at the top. With the right CEO and a healthy Board-Management relationship, you can reach a higher level of organizational performance.

Your Board is at its best when it is aligned on where to focus and how to engage.

Boards today juggle an astonishing array of dynamic, high-stakes issues. Your Board can add the most value when it agrees on the big picture and engages management on the right issues, at the right time, at the right level.
