In governing and supporting any organisation, trustees, supervisory boards, non-executive directors and regulators play key roles in ensuring the sustainability of the organisation, its place in society and the tone for ethical and responsible behaviour. A governance board aligned to the organisation’s deeper purpose and providing ethical challenge and advice is becoming more important in contemporary cultures.
Awareness of how diversity of innate preferences in thinking, feeling and behaving has profound implications for effective governance. It has profound implications for the questions that a governance board will ask, where it will focus its attention and the decision and actions it will take.
We work with governance boards to help them understand how their diversity of innate preferences can be used in addressing the alignment and effectiveness of governance boards, succession planning and board member selection and recruitment. Our work recognises the profound impact that governance boards have on the emergent cultures of the organisations they supervise.
