Corporate Governance – Why People Are Your Board’s Biggest Problem

Webinar Recording

A Board is made up of people – Directors who take the role with the intention of delivering value to the organisation. These Directors are each unique in their personality, behaviour, experience, skills and competence.

Together, as a group, a collective dynamic materialises that has a positive or often negative outcome. Simply, decisions take longer, some topics are taboo, personal agendas influence behaviour, personalities and sensitivities impact how people interact and respond.

The conversation will address examples Sharon has seen of Boardroom Dynamics that are unconstructive, difficult to “see” and address; and evidence how making these situations known to the Directors and, that provided willingness to change is prevailing, improvements in Board Effectiveness can by instantaneous.
