"... trust is critical to the collective sense-making of those with governance responsibilities..." - AICD
We work with Boards to build the kind of relational dynamic that sets a model for the culture of the entire organisation. An early priority is to agree on your reference point for good governance, which is then infused in your foundational governance documents. We work primarily with the International Standard on the Governance of Organisations (ISO 37000) and the Australian Institute of Company Directors frameworks.
Effective boards are foundational to organisational health. They make decisions jointly, and the quality of those decisions is a function of the relationships between board members.
Securing insights into the clarity of the shared purpose and relational characteristics of the Board allows targeted investments that improve trust, increase willingness to engage in healthy conflict, awaken curiosity for the diverse perspectives of key stakeholders and build shared accountability.
"If an organisation is led by a team that is not behaviourally unified, there is no chance that it will become healthy." - Patrick Lencioni
Our work with leadership teams focusses on bringing role clarity and shared commitment. We find that this is activated progressively, and rarely as a result of a single workshop or insight.
In a relational purpose-driven organisation, leadership roles are held by those who embody its values and foster trusted connections. They recognise their responsibility to create effective networks, and understand what that involves.
A collaborative executive team is committed first to the pursuit of the shared purpose. The health of the whole trumps the success of the teams that its members individually lead.
A senior executive team that empowers leadership throughout the organisation is best placed to respond to the adaptive challenges that generate the richest opportunities.
