Policy Governance Workshops
Would you like to get your board and staff all on the same page, pulling in the same direction, knowing who is accountable for what decisions and actions? Whether you need to bring a couple new board members — or the whole board of directors — up to speed, our Policy Governance 101 workshops show you how to:
- save valuable board meeting time while getting more done;
- liberate chief executive and staff to create, innovate, achieve results;
- improve the board – CEO relationship;
- prevent board member frustration and burnout;
- control effectively and be accountable — without micromanaging;
- please your members, community, owners or shareholders.
