As a Board, you will be meeting regularly and each director will be bringing their individual knowledge to provide direction and solve challenges for the business.
And as a Board you will be expending a lot of energy on giving direction, solving challenges, achieving goals. But how often do you step back and question the way in which you operate as a team? Are you performing as well as you could? Are there ways in which you make heavy weather of it? Is the burden equally spread? Is just one agenda being pursued or are there several?
All Boards could do better. The best way of helping them do so will depend on each Board. This workshop is particularly effective when, for whatever reason, the individual directors are not all pulling in the same direction. Perhaps this is because there isn’t a shared purpose, a shared set of values. Perhaps it’s because of a lack of clarity about vision and mission. Perhaps there are misunderstandings and disagreements that never make it on to the agenda, that are crowded out by the day-to-day pressures on individual directors.
So, this session is an opportunity to look in the mirror. And to turn the mirror around, to attempt to see yourselves as others see you. And, in so doing, to identify ways of performing better as a team, not just a Board.
