How effective is your Board of Directors? How do you know??
Are you certain your Board is making a real difference and contribution to your organization?
While many Boards talk about conducting regular governance evaluations, few Boards actually do. Even fewer Boards conduct performance evaluations of individual Directors. But as Boards come under increasing pressure to be accountable for how well they govern, evaluating Board and Director performance has become an essential component of good governance.
This interactive workshop will provide insight on how your Board can successfully approach this challenging aspect of governance, by examining how to develop a Board assessment framework and sharing key evaluation practices:
- How should your Board measure “success”?
- Why even bother evaluating the Board?
- The “How-To” and the “What” of evaluations
- Overcoming resistance to peer assessments
- Non-performing Directors and dysfunctional dynamics
- Impact on governance
