Board Director Services
A Great Board Is...
Simply listening to the traditional stream of presentations from the management team and outside consultants is no longer enough to fulfill board responsibilities. Having the correct people serve as board members and creating a culture that invites different opinions is critical. Competitive companies of today - and tomorrow - need to embrace constructive disagreements, versus just a "rubber stamp" of approval.
Effective boards include trust, candor, open communication, diversity, and individual accountability, and embrace self-evaluation and improvement.
