We all count on boards of directors to ensure:
1. Relevant results happen.
2. Bad things don’t happen.
Simple, but it’s not easy if board members haven’t all shared the same educational experience around the role of board, and good governance principles. Usually everyone comes to the board table with very different ideas of what boards should, and shouldn’t do, and what governance excellence actually looks like.
When boards don’t use shared principles, everyone suffers. Common symptoms range from frustration or conflict around the board table or between board and staff, a lack of engagement, focus, or direction, and extend all the way to ethics violations, financial jeopardy, and corporate failure.
These problems are avoidable! We all deserve high-performing boards that are effective, ethical, and accountable.
All boards need is a shared set of good governance principles, and a system for staying on track.
Once again – simple, but not easy.
