Session 4: Do You Have a High-Performing Board?: Measuring your success

Wednesday, Aug. 14, 8:30–9:30 a.m.
(part one of breakout session block V)

When boards fall short in performance, or when confronted by board dysfunction, a first default is often to target people who make up the Board and senior staff. However, often the problem lies not in the people, but in the underlying culture. Cultures can – and need – to be examined, managed and cultivated. While a daunting task that takes perseverance, championing and time, any board can set a course toward becoming a high-performing board. So, what does a high-performing board look like? This session will explore the top 10 cultural markers of a high-performing board and provide tools and for your board to assess effectiveness against those markers. The session is intended to be interactive and discussion based.
