Have you ever:
- Wondered why smart people frequently get stuck in group dysfunction?
- Been frustrated by a micromanaging board of directors?
- Served on a “working” board of directors, where operational and governance roles were combined?
- Questioned how time was used at a board meeting?
- Wished that accountability didn’t have to come at the expense of speed, creativity, and results?
If you serve on or work for a board of directors, chances are you have seen group dysfunction in action. Why does it
seem that most directors are intelligent, accomplished and passionate individuals, but yet somehow boards so often experience frustration, confusion, unpleasant politics, apathy, and burn-out? Highlighting the distinctions and connections between governance and management, this workshop illustrates an elegant, principle-based system that benefits board members, senior managers, staff, customers, owners, and other stakeholders.
