Why is this important for you?

Get the Chemistry, right

The skills that make up a great board are important, but it's also key that the members have mutual trust and respect. When these qualities are present, it creates a virtuous cycle in which one good quality builds on another. This can be the difference between a high-performing board and a dysfunctional one.

Constructive Boards

Board members play an active role as guides, coaches & mentors for the company’s leadership. High-performing boards understand the direction the company has undertaken and work constructively to achieve that. Even a dissent is expressed to aid the best outcome for the company. An incompatible board member could lead to the entire board being dysfunctional & be a disaster for the company.

Governance & Credibility

A well-respected board of directors can improve a company's governance credibility, which may lead to increased shareholder value. It can also ensure a favourable image of the company in the eyes of the regulators.

Strategic Advantage

Each member of a high-performing board with complementing skills and expertise can give impetus to the strategy & its execution. The right balance of stability and agility can equip the company with strategic and competitive advantages.
