Building Effective Boards

A healthy board can build community support and credibility, set policy and strategic direction, select and evaluate the performance of executive leadership, and ensure proper financial and operational controls are in place. Trust, communication, and crystal-clear role definitions are critical if boards are to make effective decisions, and evaluate and manage their own performance.

Our work with boards uses sophisticated interviewing techniques and surveys like our Board Cultural Assessment to reveal what’s really going on with a board and the organizations they serve. We examine what’s working well and identify opportunities to improve. We then coach and support board members and the executive leadership to strengthen their ability to get things done and achieve their goals.

The result is a board that is more confident, competent and creative. And as people in the organization experience greater support from their board, they will be motivated to kick their performance to the next level.

“ORG helped us focus on our core business, build leadership capacity from above with the Board and below with employees. They listened to me, struggled to understand our communities and expressed the same commitment to our success that we had.”
