Corporate governance

Corporate governance

Good governance requires boards to have effective processes and to evaluate their performance and appraise directors at least once a year

The application of simple standards at board level can radically improve performance.

  • Audits of board processes against external benchmarks
  • Audits of director skills against external benchmarks
  • Psychometric profiling and 360 feedback to discover strengths and development needs of individual directors and managers
  • Facilitation of corporate retreats for both strategy and budget planning
  • Executive coaching and appraisals of executive and non-executive directors to improve individual and group performance

These processes will enable you and your board to significantly raise your game, increase your professionalism and improve corporate performance.

The evaluation process is a constructive mechanism for improving board effectiveness, maximising strengths and tackling weaknesses, leading to an immediate improvement in performance throughout the organisation.

It will check that there are proper board procedures in place, with all directors fully understanding their role and having the special skills that directors need.

A well conducted evaluation helps the board, committees and individual directors perform to their maximum capabilities.

A quick and simple audit against established standards for directors and board processes (followed by appropriate action!), can lead to an immediate improvement of performance throughout the organisation.
