Enhance Leadership for Long-Term Success

Engaged, supportive, and well-trained governance teams—including boards, councils, committees, and more—set the tone for an organization. A high-functioning board can secure the confidence of staff and stakeholders, make stronger decisions, and enable the organization to effectively respond to opportunities and challenges.

Improve your team’s effectiveness by implementing robust governance practices related to strategic leadership, accountability processes, and roles and responsibilities.

Determine the effectiveness of your governance, identify opportunities for improvements, enhance working relationships and build interorganizational trust, and more with guidance from our professionals.

Boost Performance with Strategic Governance

A functioning and cohesive governing body—whether elected, appointed, or volunteer—is critical to your organization’s success.

Governance initiatives can help:

  • Improve the quality of guidance and board oversight
  • Elevate governance group performance
  • Clarify roles and responsibilities to foster teamwork, improve coordination with management, and create efficiencies
  • Strengthen working relationships with CEOs or executive directors
  • Attract and retain strong, engaged leaders
  • Meet environmental, social, and governance (ESG) requirements

Key Focus Areas

Our professionals can help assess governance practices, provide leadership coaching and hands-on training workshops, facilitate group retreats, and more to improve teamwork, increase alignment around values, and develop strategic goals.

  • Board Development. Align your board members to build stronger, clear relationships; enhance group decision-making; develop board policies and procedures; and help your board move the organization forward through 1:1 leadership coaching, group retreats, or hands-on training workshops.
  • Governance Assessments. Identify root causes of board issues through evaluations of group performance, the board-staff partnership, culture, structure, and processes to address challenges and uncover opportunities for improvement.
  • Facilitation. Active meeting or retreat facilitation can promote effective communication among your team about difficult topics or in highly charged environments that may have a history of conflict.
