The Trouble With Boards
Boards of directors have to ensure that:
1. Relevant results happen.
2. Bad things don’t happen.
Especially if a board isn’t using shared principles to do its job.
When boards don’t use a common set of principles, everyone suffers. Common symptoms range from misunderstandings amongst board members or between the board and CEO, to a lack of engagement, focus, or direction, to ethics violations, financial jeopardy, and bankruptcy.
These problems are avoidable! We can and should have high-performing boards that are effective, ethical, and accountable.
Once again – it sounds simple, but it’s not always easy.
Boards struggle to fit high quality governance training into their meeting agendas and budgets, and can’t always keep up with the need to orient new directors in a timely, effective way.
