Encourage positive team dynamics in your boardroom and boost company performance

Are you encouraging a culture of high performance in your boardroom? Are you finding it hard?

Boards are social groups. How the board as a group behaves has enormous consequence on how the company is governed and performs.

With this understanding, corporate governance codes around the world are increasingly imposing behavioural requirements for board members.

Team Dynamics for Boards empowers you to drive positive dynamics in your board through a deeper awareness of what happens below the surface when groups interact.

What clients say and why we designed this program

"Something is not quite right in our board, there’s a feeling of uneasiness but I can’t put my finger on it and don’t know how to fix it."

"What can I do when a board member starts having a totally dysfunctional behaviour?"

"How can I encourage my fellow board members to become a higher performing team?"

"What are the best practices when it comes to board relationships with the executive management?"

"How can we manage our dual responsibility of challenging and supporting the CEO?"

Together, we explore how you can influence team dynamics in your boardroom. You will leave with practical frameworks on how to orchestrate productive dynamics in the boardroom.
