Some boards are moving through uncharted territory and are aware that a misstep could be disastrous. Some organizations’ progress is held hostage by difficult dynamics between the board and CEO or certain board members. Some board directors get involved in operations and muddy the waters of accountability.
What is the role of the board in these situations?
Whether it’s to emerge from conflict or simply work on areas that need growth, OrgHealth approaches governance in a way that creates clarity and sets organizational health at the forefront.
Usually, the current challenges stem from cracks in the foundation. The Imperfect Board Member by Jim Brown has been a best-selling governance fable since its release in 2006, and introduces foundational concepts that boards across North America have embraced as essential training.
