Getting Your Board Up to Speed
Need a faster, more effective way to orient and train your board of directors?
Check out Brown Dog Consulting’s online board education program, the Board EXCELerator, an engaging way to ensure board members, CEOs, and staff are all on the same page regarding roles, responsibilities, and good governance principles.
The work of boards is critical, especially today. Boards have to ensure that: 1) relevant results happen, and 2) bad things don’t happen.
It sounds simple, but it’s not easy — especially if a board doesn’t have a logical system to do its job.
When boards don’t have a system, 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.
Having Everyone on the Same Page
That’s where Brown Dog Consulting comes in. Your board members, senior executives and staff can now learn the theory and practice of Policy Governance® principles online, at their own pace, in a cost-effective way.
