Boards are our business

Evaluation Services

Realize your board’s potential.

Leaders need honest feedback. It’s the first step on the road to top performance.

Evaluating board, director and CEO performance and effectiveness are critical board exercises.  Yet when asked, directors commonly report that evaluations are rarely done well, if done at all.  WATSON’s track record is the exception.
