There are many governance issues facing Boards right now with government changes in the air. Before any of these can be addressed, Board Members need to be able to work together without hostility. Healthy challenge and disagreement are vital to improvement and accountability but if the conversation becomes unreasonable or even toxic, progress will be slow and can negatively impact the business.
At Peaceful Solutions we use the Dialogue Road Map to oil the wheels of Board Communication. An independently facilitated meeting can build trust and capacity to help negotiations. Whatever it is you want to achieve as a Board, it’s always easier when the communication is on point and collaborative.
In the not for profit sector, ground up governance is a consultative approach to ensuring transparency and accountability to the regulators, the beneficiaries, the staff and the public. Using the Dialogue Road Map to change the conversation will take the pressure off volunteer trustees to foster an atmosphere of inclusivity.
