With a proprietary competency framework for high performing Directors and a process designed to mitigate unintentional bias, we ensure your next Director makes your team stronger.

Board Renewal

Board renewal can be a sensitive topic, but it’s crucial to maintaining a strong Board.  An intentional approach to renewal balances continuity with fresh skills and perspectives to serve your organization’s future. Whether it’s figuring out who will succeed your current Chair or planning for retirement of Board members, we work with you to proactively refresh your Board, its leadership, and its culture.
